Mag Fhloinn Gene 8000BC Ireland? See my O'Mahoney Post too
Hi Mr. Glenn great site at:
2. However I am particularity interested in the assertion you make in the attached file
3. Would it be possible for you to advise me what research you are referring to when you state:
" ...Researchers believe that this Tribe of pre-agrarian hunters Most likely came to Ireland at the End
of the last ice age, almost 10,000 years ago."
Surnames: Glenn Glynn McGlynn Flynn
Genetic genealogy presents the newest and most exciting opportunity to explore one's roots. At the dawn of this new mellenium,
Genetic researchers have proven that every person alive on this planet today can trace his or her roots back to
Same man and woman some 2,000 generations ago.
It was the decendants of this genetic Adam and Eve that moved out to populate the world.
It is this same type of genetic research
Shows that the Mag Fhloinn sept of Connaught
(Glenn, Glynn, McGlynn, Flynn)
One of the oldest septs in all of Ireland-
whose name meant
Researchers believe that this
Tribe of pre-agrarian hunters
Most likely came to Ireland
End of the last ice age, almost 10,000 years ago,
from the Basque region on the border of Spain and France.
Prior to that, ancestors of this tribe of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers (Aurignacian culture) arrived in Europe some 30,000 years earlier.
Direct male decendants of this clan share
Certain genetic markers on their Y-Chromosome--a
Mag Fhloinn Y-chromosome
that has been passed down virtually unchanged generation after generation from father to son.
Srname Mag Fhloinn soon became more anglicised to McGlynn
and eventually just Glynn and finally, in my case, simply Glenn.
So was there a Mag Fhloinn Adam? One man from whom all Glynns decend? Genetic genealogy can answer this question--and a great many more.
Please check out my page on the genetic project for the Glynn family, decendants of the ancient Mag Flhoinn sept.http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.mcglynn/170/mb.ashx
