Project Test Results

Below is a table showing the Y-DNA test results for members of the McManigal-McMonagle DNA Project.  The table is organized into major lineage groups with known McManigal-McMonagle patriachs or with known geographic origins. These lineage groups are numbered using roman numerals which are shown in the first column of the header line for each lineage group in the table.  The McManigal-McMonagle patriarch for each lineage group is shown in the Lineage column of the header line.  For the purposes of this project, a patriarch is usually an immigrant or other recognized head of a McManigal-McMonagle ancestral line.  However, sometimes a patriarch for a lineage group is not known yet or the lineage can only be narrowed down to a particular geographic region.  In these cases, the patriarch will be identified as a McManigal-McMonagle family from a general time period and geographical area.  The known ancestry and DNA results of some members may make it hard to place them in any lineage group.  These members will be classified as Ungrouped until more can be found out about their ancestry or until they match closely enough with someone from a known McManigal-McMonagle lineage.

A major goal of this project is to use DNA testing to develop Y-DNA marker profiles for each of the various McManigal-McMonagle lineages from around the world and to connect each member through their test results to one of these lineages.  As more members join the project and more test results are gathered, new lineages will be added and existing lineages may merge.  McManigal-McMonagle lines that were previously considered unrelated may be discovered to be closely related—and vice versa.  McManigal-McMonagle families that have hitherto been unable to connect with any other known McManigal-McMonagle line, may be able to do so with DNA testing or perhaps even establish a new McManigal-McMonagle lineage to be investigated.  When enough haplotypes—a haplotype is simply the entire set of test results for a particular person—for a particular lineage are collected, the modal haplotype for that lineage can be determined and will appear on the lineage header line in the table.  This modal haplotype is the likely haplotype of the patriarch of the lineage.  Specific branches of a lineage may show small differences from the lineage's modal haplotype and thus establish a unique profile for that branch which will be noted in the results table.

In the results table below, each project member's assigned ID is in the first column.  In the Lineage Founder and Descendancy column is the name of each linegage's earliest known ancestor (if known) and descendancy info for each member from that ancestor.  The estimated (or Y-SNP determined) haplogroup of the member is in the next column followed by all of the member's marker results (see below for marker color codings).  If a marker field contains a p, it means that testing has been ordered for that marker and results are pending.  After all the marker results, the Member ID and Earliest Known Ancestor and Descendancy columns are repeated followed by the general migration pattern for the member's line.  Next, the Haplogroup column is repeated and then there is a column showing any Y-SNP results for the member that verify the haplogroup assignment.  This is followed by the company that performed the testing and the kit number or other identifier for the test.  Next are the IDs and links to any online databases where the member's results are also posted.  Finally, the contact information, if available, for the member is listed.

Analysis of Test Results

Below are analyses of the test results for each of the lineages represented in the project.  As more members join the project and more haplotype data is obtained for each lineage, more detailed analysis will be possible.  Genealogical information on each lineage and for members of the project can be found on the Ancestral Lines page.

Lineage I:  McManigal-McMonagle (northwest IRE)

There are test results from one line and partial results from another line so far for this lineage.  The results indicate a previously unknown connection between John McManigell, Daniel McMonegal, and the McMoneagles.  They very likely share a common ancestor in the not-too-distant past in northwest Ireland, likely the Donegal area.  Daniel McMonegal is reported to have come from Co. Donegal and John McManigell may have come from Co. Longford, Ireland.  Although the results indicate two differences, at DYS389-I and DYS389-II, this is really only one difference due to the odd way that the DYS389 marker is reported by the labs.  The major haplogroup of R1b indicates a western European origin.  Y-SNP testing has revealed the lineage to M222+ (positive for the M222 SNP and R1b1b2a1b5b by the latest haplotree) which is concentrated in northwest Ireland and Scotland.  The marker values of DYS385=9-13 and DYS459=9-11 are rather rare in the general population and should be helpful in connecting to other McManigell-McManigal lineages.

Lineage II:  Ambrosius Mannigel (c1724 GER 1806 GER)

There is only one test result so far for this lineage so more testing will be needed to determine a modal haplotype.  The estimated haplogroup of R1b indicates a western European origin.  Y-SNP testing of this line is pending and may provide more clues on the geographic origin of this line.
