  • Y-Chromosome haplogroup R-M222 R-M269 This is the ancestral lineage of the Uí Néill and Connachta dynasties.
  • Mitochondrial DNA haplogroup V18 This lineage attains its highest frequency (about 50 percent) in the Skolt Saami of Scandinavia, a group of hunter-gatherers who follow the reindeer herds seasonally from Siberia to Scandinavia and back. However, the Skolt Saami population has a lower diversity compared with that observed in West Europe, making it likely to have been introduced into this population within the past several thousand years.

Hello Richard.

I would like to join the Irish Counties sub-team of the Irish Roots project. My specific interest is finding out more about my ancestors who migrated from County Cavan (i.e. James Jones) to South Australia in 1855.

Kind regards, Steve Thomas.

Richard, your Felix Devlin (Devlin-1689) had a son Patrick born 1933 but my Felix Devlin had also a son Patrick but he born in 1893. So we can´t merge Elizabeth O'Neill as the spouse of your Felix and mother of your Patrick. The previous merge we have done must also be wrong.

But I believe that we are in the right path. Would you like to discuss this privately by email? We can exchange some information on our Devlins before doing public our research.

Hello Richard,

Sorry but I had that source and family wrong. She did die in 1888. I removed the source. Thank you for pointing that out to me.

Hello Richard, I would like to join the Irish project as I am in the process of entering information onto Wikitree on some 3,000 Jephson's and that includes many in or from Ireland particularly the area around Mallow, Pass of Kilbride, Molanstown, Tintern Abbey, Dublin, Trinity College, Carrick, Kilbixy, Limerick and others. I have so far entered data on just over 1,000 Jephson's going back to the 1500's so I have a way still to go, but if I joined now, it might give me a chance to (a) learn about your work and (b) contribute to the project.. Can you give me some guidance on where I might start? Many thanks. Chris Jephson
