FTDNA results for me are heavily weighted with Maguire/Fermanagh/Cavan related matches. My only Scottish match is with a Johnstone of the Dumfries Shire area. I am posting this message to all of the variant spellings of MacCowan/MacGowan bulletin boards. If you have not been tested for Y-DNA by FTDNA and want to find your family history you may also find Ulster rich results. If you decide to take the convenient, painless, bloodless test, please use a spelling variant of eithr MacCowan or MacGowan (such as McCown) FTDNA Surname Group in order to get the discounted price. Also be sure to have FTDNA show all results regardless of surname! In my case, I do not match any other McCown abouve 12 markers but have many matches with Maguire/Fermanagh surnames at 25, 37 and 67 markers. The best tests are at 37 markers followed closely by 67 markers. Irish Scotti traded with and moved into southwestern Scotland ever since Roman times and one of these may well have had a common ancestor with the Maguires.
