DNA results R1b-FGC8410
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Family Tree DNA CrockerDNA Project Group: Deacon William Cape Cod has three individuals, one has Y-SNP tested to R1b-P311. One individual has done Y111 STR testing. According to the NevGen Haplogroup predictor, the Y111 STR result falls under R1b U106>>Z381>Z156>>DF96>S11515>FGC8410 with 100% probability.
