Re: How does one determine what surname had original "possession" of a particular YD

No surname had original possession. As surnames began to be adopted, males with a common male ancestor (and matching Y-DNA) might adopt different surnames, while males WITHOUT a common male ancestor (and hence with mismatching Y-DNA) might adopt the same surname. --Carl
