Individuals identified by a red-code, such as "HyVA-1" have been tested. All other lines await participants. The code "HyVA-1" signifies that the participant's earliest documented ancestor lived in Henry County, Virginia and this is the first Murphy to be tested from that geographic area. As another example, "UkIR-1" translates "unknown place of origin in Ireland, first participant." If Cork, Ireland were known, the code would be "CkIR-1." This serves to pinpoint where Y chromosomes existed at historic places and moments in time.
