Status summary

Completed as of April 4, 2021:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line John Bundy descendants for NGS/WGS SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)

Still to do as of April 4, 2021

  • NGS/WGS test multiple Y-DNA descendants of John Bundy to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA results TBD

Previous Y-DNA testing

The Bundy surname DNA Project does not list the Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor (MDKPA) so it is impossible to determine whether any Y-DNA descendants of John Bundy have taken a Y-DNA test.

Further needed testing

We need additional direct male-line descendants of John Bundy to WGS/NGS test to both to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
