This is a Banner Day in This Blog

Today was a day like all days until I received notice both from Jim McKown and FTDNA
that Jim is only the second McKown/McCown who is an exact 12 marker match with me.

The other match is a known cousin, Sam McCown.

Jim has signed up to be tested to 67 markers and those results should all be in by late in August. There are about 39 McCown/McKown members of the McCown Surname Group,
so this is great news at least by one of Irish descent and, hopefully two of Irish descent. I will keep you current on this as Jim's results are received.

Hi Bill,

Here are the results from the 12 marker Y-DNA test. Here are the "Alleles".

Alleles 13 25 14 11 11 13 12 12 12 13 14 29

Now this is all greek to me, so I hope you know what it means. If you need the other numbers, let me know.
