This family originated in Northern Ireland.


Two YDNA participants match on 108 of 111 markers. They share a great-grandfather, William Gough b. 1858 Tullyish, Down, Northern Ireland d. 1941 Tullyish, Down, Northern Ireland, through two of his sons: John Henry Gough b. 1881 and Joseph Gough b. 1887.


Recruiting other Gough males with a paternal lineage in County Down will help in deepening the lineage of this genetic family, which today is only proven through YDNA back to the great-grandfather of the two participants.


One kit is in the FTDNA Goff/Gough YDNA Project. The other kit has tested through FTDNA, but should join the project to facilitate analysis.
