- Recruiting additional direct male-line Arthur Hathaway 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)
Still to do as of March 23, 2021

Previous Y-DNA testing
The Hathaway Y-DNA Project Group: R-U198 "type G" documented at least one Y-DNA descendant of Arthur Hathaway, who apparently has taken a Big Y test. He has been assigned to: R-U106>>Z381>>U198>S15627>DF89>FGC12305>PH1254>FGC12307>FGC48449>JFS0004>FGC48444>FGC78280>FGC48445>JFS0058>JFS0263
We need additional Y-DNA descendants of Arthur Hathaway to take a NGS/WGS test to confirm the lineage as well as likely further refine the haplogroup assignment.
