- Recruiting direct male-line descendants of Samuel Seabury for further 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 February 27, 2021
- Determine whether there are any living Y-DNA descendants of Samuel Seabury.

- Some references state there was a third (posthumous) child, but proof is currently lacking.
Previous Y-DNA testing R1b-M269
The Seabury DNA Project currently only lists two 12 Y-STR kits, and they are a GD of 6 at 12 markers. Unknown if either of them are a patrilineal (all male line) descendant of Samuel Seabury. Both of these testers fell under R1b-M269, but with only 12 Y-STR markers tested, it is impossible to refine further.
