We are seeking close genetic Y-DNA matches in Europe especially the British Isles, Brittany, Holland or Belgium. There are nearly 100 variants of the Elliott surname.
We are looking for Elliotts or any other surnames sharing the Germanic R-U106 Haplogroup branch and/or most of the following distinctive combination of Y-DNA Markers:
All the above markers will be found only in those tested to 67 markers. The two in bold will be found in anyone tested to 12 or more markers and the last (marker 460) will be included in those tested to 37 markers.
We belong to an unusual group of Elliotts who are all descended from a Daniel Elliot who was born in Massachusetts about 1665. Members of this group are all very closely matched to one another genetically and all share well documented paper trails to this common ancestor. So far, after decades of research we remain unable to trace this line with any certainty to the old world.
Our Y-DNA is not typical of Elliots, most of whom belong to the Celtic R-P312 haplogroup branch.
If you are a European and an Elliott who has been Y-DNA tested and your first STR marker, 393=14 OR regardless of your surname you match 4 or more of the above listed markers, we would be very eager to hear from you.
