Twigs to Trees
Mary Helen Haines
Hello Clan members. Welcome to spring, and hopefully milder weather. In the previous Twigs to Trees, I published the SNP breakdown for our largest group of testers in the MacFarlane DNA project at FTDNA. Most recently, as the result of new Big Y tests in the BY3019 group, we have discovered that SNP 146078 began with the birth of John McFarland, born 1739, the eldest son of John and Mary Montgomery McFarland. We know this because a descendant of John’s (b. 1739) youngest brother, Benjamin (b. 1747), did the Big Y, and did not share 146078.
