Founder Project for Haplogroup J-Z35794. .... The Founder of J-Z35794 lived about 1410 +/- 100 years. Based on traditional record and DNA evidence for men with the J-Z35794 Haplogroup, the earliest Founder is likely to be Alexander Montgomery (1305-1388) of Renfrewshire, Scotland and could be as late as Alexander "Master of Montgomery" born 1428 who married Elizabeth Hepburn. The goal of the project is to confirm with DNA and documentary evidence the descendants of the Founder of J-Z35794 and the founders of each subclade downstream of J-Z35794.
