Haplogroup R1b is discussed in a Wikipedia article. Persons in this cluster are advised to join the R1b-CTS3386 project. The phylogeny of CTS3386 is illustrated in the BigTree

This cluster within the Fergus(s)on project is named Hebrides because most of the participants' ancestry traces back to these islands in north-west Scotland. At least one participant's ancestor is from Ulster and this presumed to be the result of emmigration.

Haplotype Table

A modal haplotype is the set of markers corresponding to the most frequently observed values for each marker. The markers highlighted are said to be off modal and patterns in these markers distinguish one branch or family from another.

Genetic Distance

Genetic distance is a measure of the differences between two haplotypes. In its simplest form one simply counts the number of markers that differ. The model used is known as the Hybrid Mutation Model and conforms to that used by Family Tree DNA.

Time to Most Recent Common Ancestor

The Time To Most Recent Ancestor (TMRCA) is a measure of relatedness and well defined in the case of a family tree wherein one simply counts the number of generations back to the most recent common ancestor shared with someone else in the tree. From differences in haplotypes between two men it is possible to make a rough estimate of the probability that the TMRCA falls between two numbers. The numbers reported in the table below are such that the TMRCA is expected to fall within the range shown with a probability of 90%.

Related Lines

Related to this group of Ferguson are some persons surnamed Carroll found in subgroup R-L21, CTS3386, S19268, Carroll/Ferguson modal, 448=20, 481=25 of the Carroll DNA Project. The surname Carroll is rare if not absent in the Hebrides. Between 1700-1800 there are 30 Carroll and variants born in Scotland, mostly in and around Edinburgh. There were none born in North-West Scotland. Hence whatever links these Ferguson and Carroll most likely occured in Ireland, especially Ulster where Scots were planted in the 1600s.

Distantly related to the Fergus(s)on and Carrol is Murphy kit 251710 found in the The Big Tree: R-CTS3386. That match is the basis of the prediction that the Hebrides Ferguson are CTS3386 and it is suggested that a Ferguson test CTS3386 to confirm the prediction. The table below shows off modal R-P312 markers shared by the Ferguson, Carroll and Murphy.
