Completed as of April 15, 2021:
- Recruiting direct male-line descendants of Samuel Rider for 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 April 15, 2021
- NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Samuel Rider (and preferably of his son Samuel [II]) to place the family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA results TBD
Previous Y-DNA testing
Currently Family Tree DNA does not have a Rider or Ryder DNA Project, although they have a couple hundred DNA tests linked to these surnames.
Further needed testing
We need additional direct male-line descendants of Samuel Rider (and preferably of his son Samuel [II]) to WGS/NGS test to discover the haplogroup/clade for the family.
