Pleased to say we now have DC815 split off as a sub-branch of the DC709 Kennedys in my project.

Unfortunately, YFULL's coverage of R-L226 (predictable haplogroup that includes this Kennedy surname cluster) continues to decline in coverage
of NGS testing. This has several reasons:

1) The Big Tree also provides a very similar service at no cost.
2) Dennis Wright continues a very in depth analysis (better than FTDNA)
3) The $50 charge (although reasonable) is an impediment to more submissions.
4) My charting of R-L226 provides much better detail than YSNP tree only charts.

Here is a more complete picture of this Kennedy surname cluster:

We still encourage (when asked) that people also submit their data to
YFULL for another view of the R-L226 haplotree. I still regularly use YFULL
(and Big Tree) for my analysis of predictor haplogroups and even R-L226
as well.

The parent of DC815 is DC709. YF shows only DC815 as a branch under DC709.

The FTDNA tree shows DC709 has five downstream branches. R-DC815, also shows to have a downstream branch, R-DC818.

Just a reminder I offer a fully funded sequencing test for male Kennedys, contact me via my website - this offer cannot be obtained at any family history shows.


This is in conjunction with my One-Name Study into the Kennedy surname which has been running since 2006. All Kennedys Irish and Scottish are covered.
