Note: Be sure to visit the Marker Results Page

on the FTDNA website it is the basis of the

groupings used on this website


Both the following pages have the same or

similar information but Display it in different






The project is divided into groups of matching or

similar participants

The groups ideally are of matching individuals but

in some cases the group could be created because

the participants have similar haplogroups


There are groups comprising Finch, Fincher and

one for Finch Cousins who no longer carry the

Finch surname (Non Y Finch Cousins)


How the Groups Were Formed:

There is no significance to the numbering of charts.

They were created chronologically when needed


1) First, everyone in the group has the same Hapogroup


2) Second, FTDNA provides every participant a

Personal Page


3) On each participant’s Personal Page there is a

listing  ranking all matches for the participant

based on Genetic Distance

The Groups on this site were created based

on the Genetic Distance Supplied by FTDNA


What you see on the Groups Pages:


Within each group each individual is listed by

Kit number, not by name


Named first, is the earliest proven ancestor

of the participant including the ancestor’s name,

dates and places
