                                                                                                          Group 004

Group #4 has tested out by the FTDNA and Whit Athey's Haplogroup Predictor  as "I"

  "Adam" -> M168 -> M89 -> M170 -> M258 -> P19 -> P38    (Shorthand:   I-M170)

                        (Negative for:        M161-M21-M223-M227-M253-M26-M307-M72-P30-P37.2 )


 - Originally classified as "I1b" as of April, 2008 Family Tree DNA now classifies this group as "I."

According to the population study by Rootsi, et. al. (2004), the I haplotype group is most dense in the area of Croatia. (The current I classification was I1b in 2004.) Population density is an indication of origins.

From Table 1 in the Rootsi paper, the I haplotype (then I1b P37 SNP in 2004) is most dense in Bosnia, Croatia, Moldova, and Slovenia (the Balkan region).


The
HAM DNA Group 4 ("I" haplotype) is possibly descended County Kent or County Suffolk in England, or Northern Ireland in the area of County Cork or County Down (see the Group 4 Ancestral search).

NOTE:

    Haplotype Groups were re-classified by Family Tree DNA in May, 2008. 
This affected the following existing groups:


    R1b1c became    R1b1b2
    I1a       became     I1
    I1b       became     I
    I1c       became     I2b
    E3b1a  became   E1b1b1

dfh - I took some liberties to list the ancestors here, because Arnold is in the process of moving and has not un-packed his records. The early records are as I understand them based upon Surry County records listed in "A Short History of the HAM Surname in VA & NC,"  then continues with the research as I understand it from Tania S. Ham and, of course, her book "William Ham(m), Senior and Some of His Descendants."   Arnold will correct this at a later date.
