Group O Origins

Post by morrisondna » Sun Jan 26, 2014 4:03 am

McLemore is condensed spelling of the name Mac Ghille Mhoire, which is the predecessor Gaelic name of some Morrison families. The marker values for Group O are close enough to modal values for Haplogroup R that there are matches to this family in Scotland, Ireland, England, and other locations in Europe even at 67 markers. The family's haplogroup is projected in the project Results listing to be R-L21, but this has not been confirmed by a SNP test. With the common values that this group has for its STR markers, SNP testing may be the key to learning more about the origins of this family through DNA research.
