Group Y Origins

Post by morrisondna » Thu Jan 30, 2014 1:43 pm

Both of the participants in Group Y descend from the same American Morrison ancestor. There are no other close matches with other Morrison groups, but 67-marker results show near matches with a McArthur from Dunblane in central Scotland and a McNabb, another central Scottish name. It seems likely that these Morrisons originated in the same area as the McArthur and McNabb matches. Future detailed level SNP testing may be able to confirm this.
