My DNA Results

My Matching Group of DNA Donors

Pedigrees are not guaranteed for accuracy by the Walker DNA Project, but are the submissions of the individual DNA participants. Any data provided should always be independently proven by the researcher wishing to use the information.


Kits 2189, 4403 and 6318 match 12/12.  It is not yet known how the three Walker lines are connected.  Research is being done.
Kits 2189 and 6318 are a genetic distance of 2 from each other, even though they appear to have more mismatches.  Please see note below and if you have further questions contact Suzanne at

NOTE:  The reporting of genetic distance for Markers 464a-d is unique. Previously, when comparing the results for these Markers, each result that did not match was considered a mismatch. With new guides lines from FTDNA's scientific board, the genetic distance calculation for Markers 464a-d has been revised. When a mismatch occurs, it must be taken into consideration whether the number of apparent mismatches are a result of the order of presentation of the Markers. The order of the results for these Markers may make it appear as if there are more mismatches than are actually present.

On the surface, it may look like there are more mismatches, but this illusion is caused by the results being reordered, and there are less mismatches. DYS 464a-d is a highly polymorphic marker, in fact it appears to be the fastest moving marker in our entire test. (Polymorphic means rapidly changing!)

When comparing two individuals' results, if it appears that there is more than 1 mismatch for Markers 464a-d, we check the genetic distance report (available to surname project administrators) to verify the number of mismatches following guidelines by the  Lab for Molecular Science and Evolution at the University of Arizona.
