Aumack Y-DNA Surname Project

Is your last name Aumack, Amak, Aumick, Aumock, Omick or some variation?

If so please consider participating in the Aumack Y-DNA Surname Project.

Overview

The goal of the Aumack Y-DNA Surname Project is find genetic matches to you or your family members in order to advance your family tree research.  Y-DNA testing will verify if an individual shares a surname or a paternal line.

 

Why choose this test?

  • Choose this test if you wish to search the paternal surname line (father’s father’s father’s line).  (In this case for surnames Aumack, Amak, Aumick, Aumock, Omick)
  • Choose this test if you are searching for direct paternal connections between men with different surnames (but have a connection to the Aumack and variants surnames) – examples: adoption, name changes, illegitimacy, fostering
  • Choose this test if searching for clues to paternal geographic or deep ancestry of your Aumack (and variants) surname.

Who to test?

A male carrying the paternal surname. Women can ask a male relative carrying the paternal surname to take the Y‐DNA test.

How many markers?

Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) offers Y-DNA 12, 25, 37, 67 and 111‐marker tests.  Males are advised to test at either Y-DNA37 or Y-DNA67.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. The segment on the 20th Chromosome is 36cM. I’ve only recently found out that it is a bigger deal than I thought it was. I’d love to have something to read on that specific topic. I’ve corresponded with the cousin in question. We’ve exchanged our extensive family history knowledge and cannot come up with a match. We both have ancestors from Ireland, England, Germany and the Alsace-Lorraine region.

  2. Hi Kathy,
    Perhaps check the FTDNA FAQ about centiMorgans:

    I tried to find a similar FAQ for 23andme but didn’t specifically find one on centiMorgans. Here is a general overview.
