Completed as of October 1, 2020:
- Recruiting additional direct male-line Joshua Conant descendants for further SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)
- Y-SNP predicted to fall under R1b-M269
Still to do as of October 1, 2020
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Roger Conant (preferably through his son Joshua) to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines
They had children;
DNA results R1b-M269
Previous Y-DNA testing
As of 1 Oct 2020, the Conant Family Tree DNA Project Subgroup: "Roger Conant" lists two individuals (STR matching each other). Neither of these individuals have done any Y-SNP testing, but one has tested 37 Y-STRs. FTDNA has predicted the family would fall under the R1b-M269 clade. Due to the fact we only have 37 STR markers, the Nevgen Haplogroup Prediction tool is unable to further refine the family's haplogroup.
Further needed testing
We need additional direct male-line descendants of Joshua Conant to WGS/NGS test to both confirm this prediction as well as to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
