DNA Results R1b-FGC58253

Previous testing

According to the Thomas surname DNA Project (no subgrouping), one individual claims to descend from David Thomas (1620-1689), father of Jeremiah Thomas.

NGS/WGS testing

The one individual in the Thomas surname DNA Project claiming to descend from David Thomas (father of Jeremiah) has taken a Big Y test and has been determined to fall under R1b-P312>>L21>S552>>DF21>S5488>Z16294>BY4001>FT32913> S19938>BY35673>FGC58253 NGS/WGS testing of patrilineal (direct male line Y-DNA descendants) of Jeremiah Thomas would identify the haplogroup for the family and possibly define subclades for descendants.
