Haven't Done Y -DNA Testing?

If you are a male or female McHale or have a McHale in your pedigree and you have completed autosomal DNA testing- we'd love to hear from you. 

Our group members have DNA on Ancestry.com, FTDNA's Family Finder and GEDMatch.

Phylogenetic Trees

McHales and our closest genetic relatives are members of the following phylogenetic trees:

  • The Big Tree
  • YFull
  • Haplogroup R-Experimental Tree

Mapping the birthplace of our oldest known relative is a goal of the group.

Knowing the birthplace of even a distant relative can help you break through the "Brick Wall" where printed records end.
