Welcome! As of 27 Jun 2022 there are 56 Big Y DNA testers who have the J-Z35794 Haplogroup. The goal of this project is to:

  1. Identify the Founder of Haplogroup J-Z35794 and each of its subclades
  2. Identify Immigrant Ancestors associated with J-Z35794 and each of its subclades
  3. Explore relationships between the men in J-Z35794 and the men with surnames Nyberg, Hunt, Willison, Jokiranta, Canning and Eade who share the Haplogroup J-Z35788, which is the Grandparent Haplogroup of J-Z35794.

Haplogroup J-Z35794 Age Estimation

DNA dating tools tell us the J-Z35794 Haplogroup was founded by a man who lived about 1410 give or take 100 years.

DNA matches and documentary evidence from known genealogies strongly suggest that the earliest Founder of the J-Z35794 Haplogroup could be Alexander Montgomery (1305-1388) of Renfrewshire, Scotland, a descendant of "Robert deMontgomery" of Renfrewshire, Scotland known as the Founder of Clan Montgomery.

I'm Terri Stern, the coordinator of this WikiTree project and the 'Montgomery of Scotland' Founder Project for Haplogroup J-Z35794 hosted at Family Tree DNA.

Here are some of the tasks that I'll be working on:

  • Creating WikiTree pages for each of the subclades under J-Z35794
  • Creating WikiTree pages for Haplogroup J-Z35788 and it's subclades

Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

I want to join. (WikiTree said Y DNA is only for Males, but I see no way to add that to my profile)

Great! I think WikiTree requires me to have a certain number of members before this page becomes an official project. I will check it out.
