McCaffrey DNA Project Patriarchs








            We list the basic (short) family lineages, by earliest ancestor (Patriarch), that are provided by project participants and others. The information contained in these basic lineages can be used as a starting point for additional research of the more detailed lineages and reference sources found both online and other repositories. The Line Leaders are volunteers and serve as a point of contact for those interested in a particular lineage. If it is known, we also provide a link to the lineage contributor's online website. We hope to eventually include the lineages of each branch of all McCaffrey, etc. family trees and to arrange their yDNA results on the "Results" page. Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on the Patriarchs page. At the end of many of the lineages, there is a red M-xy designator. This identifies the yDNA data on the Results Page. We do not post any information concerning living or possible living people born less than 100 years ago. Inclusion of these lineages does not necessarily mean that the administrators and/or line leaders agree with the lineage creator's research.

            To add your abbreviated lineage to this page, please email it to the McCaffrey Project Administrator.  If you have an online lineage that you would like your submission to be linked to, please include the URL.
