Skibbgirl,

Do you have a male McCarthy relation who has taken a yDNA test? If not have you considered this? The McCarthy Surname Study is seeking to identify yDNA profiles (ancestral haplotypes) for each of the various sept names and more recent agnomens. This is an ambitious aspect of the overall project, just starting out, but slowly we are making progress. We really need at least three members for each agnomen or with a strong claim to descend from one of the more ancient septs. We will then compare the similarities of these profiles to one another and against the ancient genealogies. We have already identified two main McCarthy groups, each with a common ancestor in the first millenium A.D.; these two groups account for 50% of all McCarthys: the other 50% are more disparate, but so far indications are that they include descendants of chiefs of some septs, and if that is so the ancient genealogies cannot be correct. If you are interested or want to know more, please contact me. E-mail address provided at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/McCarthySurnameStudy/def...
