Previous Y-DNA testing

The Curtis DNA Database subgroup: Plymouth MA (Francis) currently has two individuals claiming Francis Curtis as their Most Distant Known Patrilineal Ancestor (MDKPA). Both individuals have only 25 Y-STR tested, and Family Tree DNA predicts they fall under R1b-M269.

Further testing needed

Patrilineal descendants of Francis Curtice (and preferably via his son Ebenezer) are needed to NGS/WGS test to verify this haplogroup placement and possibly further refine the haplogroup as well as contact MayflowerDNA1620@gmail.com and disclose their lineage.
