 DNA matches in the Ennever and related families

DNA logo

DNA testing has become relatively inexpensive recently and is becoming a major influence in family history research enabling us to discover not only many undiscovered genetic family links but also potentially answering some of our unsolved questions and knocking down our 'brick walls'. We will all also have illegitimacy somewhere in our family history and with DNA we have the potential to determine more biological relationships.

Over time this page will be updated with more general information on the importance (and some potential pitfalls) of DNA testing as well as displaying many of the genetic links that it has enabled me to discover or confirm.

A genealogical DNA test is a DNA-based test which looks at specific locations of a person's genome, in order to find or verify ancestral genealogical relationships or (with lower reliability) to estimate the ethnic mixture of an individual. Since different testing companies use different ethnic reference groups, consisting of now living test persons with unknown pre-census time origins, the estimated ethnic mix is typically highly contradictory among companies. Genealogical DNA tests are not designed to give extensive information about medical conditions or diseases. Three principal types of genealogical DNA tests are available, with each looking at a different part of the genome and useful for different types of genealogical research: (1) autosomal, (2) mitochondrial (mtDNA), and (3) Y-DNA. Autosomal tests may result in a large amount of DNA matches (other test persons that the individual may be related to), along mixed male and female lines, each match with an estimated distance in the family tree. However, due to the random nature of which and how much DNA is inherited by each tested person from their common ancestors, secure conclusions can only be made a small number of generations back. Autosomal tests are also used in estimating ethnic mix. MtDNA and Y-DNA tests are much more reliable, also in finding prehistoric relationships to ancient DNA. However, they give considerably fewer DNA matches, if any, that can be verified in family registers since they are limited to relationships along a strict female line and a strict male line respectively. MtDNA and Y-DNA tests are utilized to identify archeological cultures and migration paths of a person's ancestors along a strict mother's line or a strict father's line. Based on MtDNA and Y-DNA, a person's haplogroup(s) can be identified. Only men can take Y-DNA tests. Source:
