DNA results I-S2488
The Mayflower DNA Project and the Hamlin-Hamblin DNA Project Group: I-M170 gives the Ham(b)lin family as falling under Haplogroup: I-M170 based on the 67 Y-STR markers of one individual. Plugging in these STR markers into the Nevgen.org Haplogroup Predictor comes up with a predicted haplogroup of: I2a2b>>S2488 with 100% probability. The full pathway for this haplogroup is: I-M170>P215>CTS2257>L460>P214>S2599>S11321>S2519>S2497>L38>S2606>FGC29656>FGC29569>S2488
NGS/WGS testing of additional Y-DNA descendants of Isaac Ham(b)lin would likely further refine this haplogroup and possibly create subclades for different branches of the family.
