International Lindsay* DNA Group 5

"Lindsays of Alabama & Tennessee"

The defining term "Lindsays of Alabama & Tennessee" is used in an attempt to establish a basic origin geography for the composite DNA Group 5.

Josie Lindsay Bass is the Group Administrator for DNA Group 5 and can be reached via e-mail by clicking on Josie L. Bass.  Josie is a very knowledgeable researcher for this grouping of Lindsays and should be your first contact for questions pertaining to DNA Group 5 genealogy and in the determination of the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA).

Click on DNA Data Spreadsheet to view the DNA marker values for the current participants of DNA Group 5.

***********************************************************

The four (4) participants in DNA Group 5 match 43 out of 43 markers and are all known cousins.

The name of the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA) for all the Lindsay lineages of DNA Group 5 has been determined to be Zachariah Lindsay (1814 TN - 1892 AL)

If you have information, accompanied by the appropriate citations, that demonstrate how the Lindsay lineages of DNA Group 5 can be expanded, please contact Josie L. Bass, Group Administrator, DNA Group 5.

Reference Notes

  1. Proper Analysis of DYS389-1 & DYS389-2 Marker Mutations.

In analyzing the marker values in the table representing this DNA Group, it is important to remember the following in your analysis of loci DYS389-1 and DYS389-2 matches and mismatches.

  1. The loci DYS389-1 and DYS389-2 are two legitimate lengths of DNA but move in tandem.
  2. DYS389-1 refers to the length of only one portion of the DYS389 marker.
  3. DYS389-2 refers to the total length of the DYS389 marker. Therefore, when there is a one step mutation at DYS389-1, it will also appear to be in DYS389-2.
  4. When comparing one individual to another, if the values for two individuals differ by one repeat at DYS389-1, that represents a one-step mismatch.
  5. If the values for the same two individuals differ also by one repeat at DYS389-2, then it should only be counted as one combined mutation for DYS389-1 & DYS389-2.
  6. If the marker values for two individuals differ by one repeat mismatch at DYS389-1 and a two repeat mismatch at DYS389-2, then it should be counted as two separate mismatches or mutations.
  7. There is another and potentially even more confusing situation that could occur at marker DYS389. If the marker values for two individuals differ by one repeat mismatch at DYS389-1 and then a perfect match at DYS389-2 for these same two individuals. This should be counted as two separate marker mismatches since the value mismatch at DYS389-1 was offset by a mutation in the opposite "direction" from the value found at DYS389-2 and appears to cancel out the mutation that occurred at DYS389-1.
  8. However, keep in mind there can be a mutation at DYS389-2 that will not affect the length found at DYS389-1.
