#7139-Stephen-my line is traceable back to Conrad/Coonrod Pile of
Tennessee (1766-1849), but the path gets murky prior to that. There are
also numerous Pile/Pyle groups (Kansas, California, Texas, etc) that are
The first six kit numbers, match closely, indicating a possible
common ancestor within the past 7-14 generations, 350 years more or less.
Upgrades to 25 markers are needed for those that have not already done
so, in order to establish relatedness. These appear to have
a "viking" haplotype; recent ethnic origins in England, Norway, Iceland.
We need more participants! Descendants of the immigrants
to the U.S and men that live in England, New Zealand, Australia and other
parts of the globe. This is a fascinating study and we are on the
cutting edge of this type of research tool. The sampling technique
involves the painless use of a small brush inside the cheek to collect
a few cells. The kit is used at home and then mailed back to FTDNA.
If you have hit a "brickwall" in your genealogical research DNA analysis could be a useful tool to link with others and give new direction to your genealogical research.
Our study may answer these questions:
How many different common male ancestors are associated with Pyle/Pile(s) or other variant spelling.
How your ancestors are related to other families with the name.
How are the different family lines related?
Are all those from a particular country related, or are different families using the name.
It is possible to make a connection between the various lines in the US and to researchers in England, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
An analysis of the mutations in the Y-chromosome can also be used to
estimate the "Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA)" in terms of number of
generations since the separation occurred.
