I have a family (Warren) that has a 389-1 value of 9. This is said to be quite rare and I am wondering if data are computerized to the extent that this could be used to flag related records that might otherwise be missed. In my case the family name was Payne but ydna proved it to be Warren. Subsequently, a Warren - Payne adultery case was found in early Spotsylvania County, Virginia, apparently explaining the dna.
My questions are: (1) How rare is a 389-1 value of 9?, and (2) is this rarity of any particular use in genealogy? (3) are records computerized to the extent that tests with a 389-1 value of 9 could be identfied?
Did you try your haplotype at ysearch? You can use a haplotype search with 10 of your first 12 markers leaving out 389-1 and 389-2.You may find a few matches.I think its great to have such a rare value and you will know that other people who have them must be related to you.I just wonder if FTDNA would consider that a onestep mutation instead of four. Did you know that Warren was used as a synonym of Murnane in Co.Kerry.
