For comparison purposes, the current International Lindsay Surname DNA Project participants have been divided into categories (DNA Group 1 thru DNA Group 17) where appropriate, with the balance of those participants who do not currently match at the end of the table. These DNA Groups will contain all the participants who have matches which indicate they likely have a Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) within the timeframe when surnames became common practice. Each DNA Group will be composed of two or more people who have no more than four (out of 43 markers), one-step, marker mismatches.
The "earliest known ancestor" will also be provided for each of the participants in these seventeen (17) unique DNA Groups to assist in developing the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for each of these groupings. The "earliest known ancestor" should not be confused with the "earliest known proven ancestor". It is the hopes of the Lindsay Surname DNA Project that one day soon our participants will fully document their genealogies and we will be able to use the "earliest known proven ancestor" term with confidence for all the participants.
To really be meaningful, those participants in the database who have not been grouped due to having more than four (4) mismatches (out of 43 markers) with the other participants will be required to wait until the International Lindsay Surname Haplotype Database grows with the addition of more Lindsay males from which hopefully we will find other Lindsay lineages that provides fewer mismatches for their haplotype, yielding a potential common ancestor in the nearer term.
* It has been established that the use of the Lindsay surname, throughout this web site, implies all the accepted different spellings of the surname found in the Orthography section of this web site.
