This project page can be accessed without being a registered member. The yDNA results and patriarch's pages include results for our line under the lineage of Thomas Shaw of Castledermot. Our line from David Shaw has been confirmed by identical markers for descendants of each of his two wives, Anna Souhan and Mary Flynn. The results are listed under S-30 and S-40.  More important, however, may be a new found link to the Joyce surname.  A match with a common ancester less than 20 generations ago has been found with a man with the surname Joyce.  In his pedigree, there is a man who uste the surname of Seoighe.  A google search of this surname  http://www.seoighe.com/about.htm   shows that the name is the Irish varient of the surname Joyce and it is pronunced Sho-ya.  Visit the Joyce surname project and you can see the genetic match is much closer than any found in the Shaw project.
