Surnames: McKee and 302 Family Finder matches to date plus over 1,000 at 23&me
Hello Dan, Just now rec'd the Digest mode and see your response. I must not be setup anymore for notice in my email and have to check that out.

Anyway, sorry not to explain my post in more detail. Family Finder is an autosomal DNA test also performed by FTDNA (FamilyTreeDNA)

Autosomal DNA has nothing whatsoever to do with yDNA. The autosomal test looks for matches with all of your relatives, both male and female, who have also tested their autosomal DNA. At 23andme you have the autosomal test. has developed the same program this past spring but are still in the early development of their program.

If you go to the FTDNA Home page and search for autosomal or look at where you would ask for info on autosomal it would explain more in detail.

My husband is kit 127187 with the yDNA McKee Group at FTDNA and is tested out to 111 markers and is Haplogroup R-M222. He matches very tightly with McKee and McGee and McKie and Kee of Ulster and Southwest Scotland roots appearing (based on very early documents) to most likely derive from McGhie of various spelling before deriving from even more ancient descent.

R-M222 covers many surnames and many of the people tested R-M222 are close matches back to the beginning of the use of surnames for the masses and derive from members of the clans going back before the written use of surnames for the "common people".

Anyway, the kinship with Cooper and McKee will go back to some grandparents-in-common way back and will involve a cousin connection if we ever find it. May or may not be kin to you.
