The MAYOSephardicOrigin Surname Project

Description:

The MAYO FAMILIES OF SEPHARDIC ORIGIN Project is open to all who are interested in working together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and DNA testing. All variant spellings are welcome (MAYO, DE MAYO, MAIO, DE MAIO, MAJO, DE MAJO, MAIU, DE MAIU, MAGGIO, DE MAGGIO, MAYA, etc.). This project is focused on the MAYO families of Sephardic ancestry. After the expulsion of the Jews from Spain, the MAYOs moved to numerous regions, primarily around the Mediterrean area and especially the Ottoman Empire. Several members of this group have traced their families back to the 1500s. For men, you must have the surname MAYO or a spelling variant of this surname). Your Y-DNA will be tested. For men or women who want to test their maternal ancestry, you will need to order the mitochondrial DNA test. This test should be ordered if ANY of the following apply: your mother´s mother´s mother, OR your mother´s mother´s mother´s mother, OR your mother´s mother´s mother´s mother´s mother, and so on down the mother´s maternal line of the family, had the surname MAYO or a variant spelling of the surname. We will be able to see if we have common ancestry, and furthermore, narrow down the year of which two people had a common ancestor using the newer Y-DNA67 test and the mt DNA Plus (high resolution Maternal Match) test. We will know which families may be more closely related to others. We feel that this will help us to better understand and to be able to proceed much more efficiently with our research. Also, this will enable us to formulate a map of the paths that our ancestors took following their expulsion from Spain. It would be extremely interesting.Note: The group has decided to all use the Y-DNA67 test (male 67 marker paternal test (group) and/or the mtDNA Plus (high resolution Maternal Match) test). Please e-mail the group administration, Robert RUBIN MAYO, if you have any questions or comments.
