Nolan Lineage VII represents N-8, N-10, and N-38.

* Lineage VIII - Nolan (Nollent) and Ozment (Osmond) Clan)

Famille de Nollent: Nolan (Nollent) and Ozment (Osmond) Branch


N-2 - Richard de Nollent of France

* N-2 and N-62 have a 23 of 25-marker match. They mismatch at DYS #385a and 464d. The mutation from 11 to 12 at DYS #385a for N-62 does not appear to be a recent mutation meaning that the 23 of 25-marker match for these two families indicates an ancient common ancestor not within the genealogical time frame. N-62 clearly has an 11 and 14 ancestor at DYS #385a and 385b. His lineage then mutated to 12 and 14 at DYS #385a and 385b. N-62 is more likely to have recent common connections with a group at 12 and 14 at DYS #385a and 385b then with his 11 and 14 ancestor, however, the ancient connection to the 11 and 14 ancestor is still valid and may exhibit itself as in this 23 of 25-marker match. N-68 is a genetic distance of one from N-2 and N-62 at the 25-marker level.

Nolan Lineage VIII represents N-2, N-62, and N-68.

Lineage IX - Barony of Boyle, County Roscommon Clan O’Nolan

N-15 and N-64 have a genetic distance of one with a 36 of 37-marker match. Research has established it as a County Roscommon lineage.
