Completed as of March 24, 2021:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line Robert Tyler descendants for NGS/WGS 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 24, 2021

  • NGS/WGS test multiple Robert Tyler Y-DNA descendants to firmly place family clade as well as discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

Previous testing

The Tyler Family DNA Project Group: Haplogroup R1b - Lineage 1 documents the haplogroup for this Tyler family as: R1b-U106>>Z381>>L48>Z9>>Z326>Z8168>FGC18842>FT73970>BY63937>BY20434>BY20445>FT246370

NGS/WGS testing

NGS/WGS testing of descendants of Robert Tyler would identify the haplogroup for the family and possibly define subclades for descendants.
