In Reply to: Kinnaman Kineman Kinnamon DNA Surname Project by Randy Kinnamon of 45

My father recently did the Y DNA test through FTDNA too and through Y Search one of the Surnames that my family matched Exactly to on the 12 marker level was KINNAMAN (that spelling).
After all of my years of researching our family it appears that they came from an area of Angus-shire, Scotland between Dundee and Montrose. Once you get as far north as Aberdeen my family name seems to dwindle out. But it is highly concentrated in the Angus-shire area AND about half maybe more of the surnames that Y Search had us Exactly Matched to on a 12 marker level were found in this same area of Scotland as well. I even found several variations of the name Kinnaman/Kinemont etc.
We are of the Hap. I group if that's any help. The person to whom my father exactly matched at 12 markers must be Hap. I as well.
Since the Haplogroup I, according to FTDNA explanation, come from the Viking times, this would explain why you have some Kinnaman's in Germany and some in Scotland.
I thought this might be helpful to your Y DNA project somehow.
OH, my surname is MOODY, most likely was originally spelled MUDIE / MOODIE but "English-ized" once they came to America since the spelling in the states was more commonly MOODY for the English branches of that name who came in the early 1600's.
Good Luck on your DNA project.
