How to Take Part

If you are a male and of Manx origin, and possess one of the list of Manx surnames listed on the main page of this website, then you are eligible to take part - and we would be delighted for you to do so.

If you have already had a 37 marker (or more) STR Y-DNA test with one of the existing DNA testing companies - then you should share your results with this project in the following ways:-

If you have tested with FTDNA already - then you can follow this link (you will need your normal FTDNA login details). Alternatively you can go to the page on the FTDNA website entitled "My FTDNA" in the normal way and near the top of the list of menu options on the left hand side is the choice "Join Projects". click on this option. On the next page there is an index of projects and you should find the page under "Y Geographical Projects" and look for the Isle of Man Project page - and then click on the yellow "Join" button. This will automatically include your results into the data for this project.

If you have STR results tested with any other companies and you have already uploaded your results to YSearch - then please email the project coordinator at creer@one-name.org and advise him of your YSearch identity code. Any additional information on the ancestry of your paternal line would also be helpful.

If you have STR results tested with any other companies but they have not been uploaded to YSearch, then please send details of your marker results, plus details of your haplogroup (if you know it) in what ever form is most convenient, by email to  creer@one-name.org. Again any additional information on the ancestry of your paternal line would also be helpful.

 

If you have not already been tested for your Y-DNA then preferential testing prices have been provided for you to test with FTDNA. This link will take you to the Isle of Man Y-DNA project join page at FTDNA, it explains what is required in taking this type of test and allows you to request to join the project. When your join request has been approved by the project coordinator you will receive and email with a link within it, enabling you to proceed and  place an order for a test. Once the test results are completed then a copy will obviously be sent to you, but also copied to this project. Alternatively you can contact the project coordinator here by email and request to join in the same way.

In general it is recommended that you take a test for the maximum number of STR markers that you reasonably can afford, up to a practical maximum of 67. An absolute minimum of 37 markers and ideally 67 is required to take part in this project to obtain any meaningful results.
