Completed as of October 1, 2020:
- Recruiting additional direct male-line John Peterson 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)
- Y-SNP predicted to fall under I-M253
Still to do as of October 1, 2020
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of John Peterson to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines
They had children;
DNA results I-M253>DF29>Z58
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Peterson Y-Chromosome DNA Surname Project Subgroup: "Group 03" lists two individuals, both state Most Distant Known Paternal Ancestor (MDKPA) was John Peterson. Neither of these individuals have done any Y-DNA SNP testing. Plugging in their Y 67 STR values into the Nevgen.org Haplogroup Predictor predicts a variety of haplogroups mostly under I-M253>DF29>Z58 (but with a 35% chance of the haplogroup falling outside of what the predictor can test).
- set for I haplogroup
Further needed testing
We need additional direct male-line descendants of John Peterson to WGS/NGS test to both confirm this prediction as well as to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
