Brown/Browne/Braun DNA Study: Marker Values for Group Ten        
   
Click here for other Groups    
   
The members of the relationship group below (Group No. 10) are likely as a rule to share common Brown ancestors with fellow group members inside a "genealogical" time frame, that is, approximately since the widespread introduction of surnames in western Europe during the 15th century.  
   
   
These groupings are strictly tentative, however, and they will necessarily be revised from time to time. What's more, the identification of specific common ancestors for any group will generally depend more upon conventional "paper" genealogy than upon additional DNA testing.    
   
   
To the extent that there are mistakes in the groupings, we have tried to err on the side of inclusiveness by using selection criteria broader than those employed by many other surname-tracing projects. In technical terms, we view a false negative as worse than a false positive, so we prefer to err toward the latter. One implication is that some of this project's Groups will almost surely lose members -- or even "break down" -- if all their members should eventually upgrade from 12 to 25 or more markers. Such outcomes are most probable for Groups equal or close to the so-called "Atlantic Modal Haplotype" (AMH), as for example Group Nos. 5, 15, 18, 20, 56, 59, 87, 88 and 89. For more information on the AMH issue, see the discussion under Group No. 20.    
   
   
 
 
       
Criteria for Determining Relationship Groups:        
   
For Haplogroup R1b and its subclades: Members must match 12/12 on the first 12 markers, at least 23/25 on the first 25 markers, or at least 33/37 on the first 37 markers.  
     
For all other Haplogroups: Members must match at least 11/12 on the first 12 markers, at least 23/25 on the first 25 markers, or at least 33/37 on the first 37 markers.  
   
     
Note on Modal Values within Groups: In cases where a specific marker's modal value is undefined, a value is substituted from among the modal values for all project members with the same haplogroup.    
   
     
   
Color coding for Haplogroups:    
   
Green = haplogroup proven by independent SNP test                                  
Red = haplogroup inferred from STR's with high confidence (no SNP test)        
Blue = haplogroup inferred from STR's with medium to low confidence (no SNP test)    
Black = haplogroup presented with unknown confidence (SNP status not known)

Note 1: No. 11795 has been included tentatively in Group No. 10,  in spite of the fact that he's four genetic steps away from his nearest partial match among other members of this group.  There are three reasons for this decision: (1) The families of no. 11795 and no. 2228 have both strong "paper" evidence and a persuasive oral tradition of common Brown ancestry; (2) no. 11795 and the other members of this Group are all closer to one another than they are to any other project participants; and (3) all members of this Group have either zero or very few "non-surname" matches -- a circumstance under which the probability of false positive matches is very low. For a similar "violation" of the conventional relationship criteria, see Group No. 71 below. As for nos. 3909 and 68300, their earliest known Ramsey ancestor was an orphan of unknown parentage, who now is thought to have been a "biological Brown."

Note 3: No. 108760 has also tested as No. N34888, and he's listed under the latter number on previous versions of this page.
