Tinlin, Tinline and Tinling DNA Study
Below are my DNA results. This was a test only of my “Y line”, i.e. my straight male lineage, which should make these the values for all Tinlin descended from Robert Tinlin of Kirkwhelpington. If all Tinlins, Tinlines and Tinlings are really descended from the same individual, then all males with that name should carry these or very close values. I’m hoping more men with these last names will be willing to have their DNA tested so that we can start comparing and testing our lineages. A good example of a large-scale study can be found at this DNA site for the many Hill families: http://www.hilldna.com/results.html. On that page you can see how different DNA test results can be grouped together to show which individuals are descended from a common ancestor.
Despite the rarity of the Tinlin surname, my values turned
out to be pretty “generic European”. My haplogroup is R1B1, the most common
Of others who took the 37-marker test, only 3 individuals
were close to my values (all were 4 steps away from mine). Most interestingly, one of these was a

I have just requested the company where I had my DNA tested to set up a Tinlin-Tinline-Tinling surname project. The company can be reached here:

If you would like to take part, it is best that you order the 37-marker test. You will be sent a kit in the mail and all you have to do is rub a swab inside your cheek and send it back to them. The cost is roughly $200 per person. Only male individuals can take part in this particular study (as it is testing for the Y chromosome).

**On 5/19/2003, these values were adjusted down by 1 point because of a change in Lab nomenclature.
