DNA results R1b-Z302

Previous Y-DNA testing

The Barber Surname DNA Project Group: R1b1a2 - Group # 02 (+Farley), has one individual claiming a Most Distant Known Patrilineal Ancestor (MDKPA) as Moses Barber, b 1652 d 1732. This individual has not SNP tested, but has Y111 STR tested with FTDNA predicting he falls under R1b-M269. Plugging in his 111 YSTRs into Nevgen gives a prediction of R1b P312>DF19>Z302 with 100% certainty.

Further needed testing

We need additional direct male-line descendants of Moses Barber to WGS/NGS test to define the haplogroup.
