Status summary

Completed as of March 24, 2021:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line John Fullerton 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 March 24, 2021

  • NGS/WGS test multiple Fullerton descendants to firmly place family clade as well as discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA Results TBD

Previous testing

The Fullarton/Fullerton DNA Project currently does not list the Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestors (MDKPA) in their project, so it is unknown if any Y-DNA descendants of John Fullerton have done any Y-DNA testing.

NGS/WGS testing

NGS/WGS testing of descendants of John Fullerton would identify the haplogroup for the family and possibly define subclades for descendants.
