Hello, Robert, We have the  L21, marker from our Irish lineage. When we were in Ireland in 2007, we visited Galway, Ireland. It is our understanding that there is an extension of Iberian-Irish who live there..  The legend told was that a few of the Spanish came onto the Irish shores, while sailing the Spanish galleons, during the Armada.   The first president of Ireland, I believe was Ramon de Valero.  Maybe you will find something if you Google the Spanish in Ireland, during the middle ages, or the Spanish Armanda and the Irish....or some thing that may pull up some history on that.  Also the Library of Family Genealogy in Galway, Ireland, may have some information for you.   (James Joyce's wife was from Galway...but do not know if they had the same heritage as the Iberian-Irish.)  I think the tradition of this clan, was that the men wore red sashes around their waist, and the women wore red petti-coats, under their skirts.
Best of Luck, to you!

Check out the "Site Map" on the above Tool Bar.  You may find your L21's.

Hello, Gurt, We are members of the "O'Mahony Society" and using the FTDNA (Family Tree DNA) lab, in Houston, Texas.   We received results that some of our matches were L21, and it seems like there are more than a few.   Look at the Mahoney results, as well....we were told by a Malony in Ireland that both Malony/Molony and Mahoney's (with or without the suffix "O") were related from long, long ago.  (Some may be the same genetic groups.)   Mahoney's are originating from Co. Cork.  Malony or Molony, from Co. Clare, and maybe county, Limerick in Ireland.   We are not on this site very often.  Hope you find more who match you. Try looking on the search of Mahoney's in County Cork, who  may be the L21.   (Also try a "Google" search)  Our surname was changed from Mahoney to Willard, around 1850.  So there may be a few other "Willard's" who will find they are related to the Mahoney and Maloney groups. originating in Ireland.  Ask "23 and me" if they have a list of all L21's that you could view.  It is worth a try.  We have few genetic matches in the Willard group, so far.
Our Best to You!

i Recently recieved my results from 23andme Only took 2 weeks.
they say im R1b-L21 ...
i really hoped id be R1b-S21  or RIa or some type of I...
But nowi dont know what to do with myself.. besides attempt to get
them to re Analyze my Data

Hello everyone,

It has been a while since I posted anything because I've been pretty busy.  The project I'm working on right now is how to contact all the Harps in England.  According to one site that gives information on surname distributions, there are 231 Harps in England.  I am assuming about half of them are males.  There is no way I will ever get all of them to answer me, much less get them to agree to testing, but I'm still going to try.  I've been doing searches on phone book listings in England and have found the primary areas where groups of Harps live there.  My next step is to try to reach them through local advertising and tell them about the Harp Project.  I'm hoping we can get enough to test so that we can get a sampling of the Y DNA Harp clades that came to America from England.  I will be paying for all of these tests that I can get them to take.  It shouldn't be a big cost since they will be small tests.

I've also been searching through haplogroup projects to find people with the Harp surname that don't belong to this project.  If I find them I ask that project administrator to let them know about our group here.

One more thing that I've done is to order the FGC Whole Genome Long Read Pilot test.  This is a new next generation test (I guess you could call it a next next generation test) that has a 10M base pair read length as opposed to current tests that have a 100 - 250 base pair read length.  This test is still experimental and I wouldn't recommend it for everyone yet.  The hope is to greatly increase the amount of the Y chromosome covered which will find SNPs, Indels, and STRs that have previously been missed do to the massively shorter read lengths currently in use.  Also, this test may greatly increase the reliability of the results returned.  It may take a few years for these tests to have the full effect of their potential, but someone has to go first in new research or we never progress.

STRs have been of great help to genetic genealogy, but their function is changing.  Current next generation testing (such as the Big Y and YElite 2.1) gives definitive results to the areas of the Y chromosome that they can cover.  STRs will become most effective at looking for establishing shorter distance relationships such as are very compatible with paper trails.  Once SNPs define the relationship, STRs will be able to give shorter estimations of MRCA until all SNPs can be classified as known individual branches.  So, your STRs tests will still be useful for a long time to come.

I would recommend that as we progress that 1 person from each subclade here take a next generation test such as the Big Y.  This will greatly flesh out your portion of the tree and bring you much closer to the present.  That is something STRs can not do on their own.  If others in that subclade want to share the cost with the person being tested.  It will eventually save you money on which SNPs you need to test to finalize your own search.  However, if you intend to eventually take the Big Y anyway, don't spend the money on individual SNPs.  That would only increase your cost by having them tested twice.

Best wishes to all

Jeff Harp
