DNA results TBD
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Loveall DNA Project does not give the Most Distant Known Patrilineal Ancestor (MDKPA) so it is impossible to determine whether any project members descend from Joseph Lovell.
Further testing needed
Known patrilineal descendants of Robert Loveell (and preferably through his great-grandson Joseph) are needed to Big Y test, contact MayflowerDNA1620@gmail.com and disclose their lineage in order to refine this clade assignment.
