Group AM Origins

Post by morrisondna » Sun Feb 02, 2014 3:09 pm

Group AM is a Scots-Irish family of Morrisons who have many close Morrison matches at 12 markers, but no matches with other Morrisons at 25 markers and above. This demonstrates the need for testing at least 37 markers for reliable matches. Since there are only two Morrisons in this group, this family may be one who acquired the Morrison name in Northern Ireland or shortly before migration there from Scotland. In this case, it is important to find the closest matches with other surnames to determine where the family originated in Scotland. These other-surname matches may give important clues, as discussed at the website http://www.scottishorigenes.com .
