Previous Y-DNA testing
The Turner family DNA project currently (as of February 25, 2021) does not publicly display their Y-DNA results. They do list their groupings under https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/turnerdnaproject/about/results and it lists four individuals (with two tracing back to Humphrey Turner) under Group 29. The Administrator of this project has stated this group (descendants of Humphrey Turner) fall under Haplogroup I-M253 and no one in this group has done any Y-SNP testing.
