Status summary

Completed as of October 1, 2020:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line Bullock descendants for NGS/WGS SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact MayflowerDNA1620@gmail.com
  • Y-SNP tested to R1b-DF25 and predicted to fall under R1b L21>DF13>DF21>>DF5>BY23559.

Still to do as of August 29, 2020

  • NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Richard Bullock to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines

DNA results R-S17075

Previous Y-DNA testing

The Snow DNA Project Subgrouping: "Lineage 3 William" has seven individuals, all STR matches to each other, with three claiming William Snow (1624-1708) was their Most Distant Known Patrilineal (all male line) Ancestor (MDKPA). None of these individuals have done Y-SNP testing, and FTDNA predicts they fall under R1b-M269. Two of the individuals have done 111 Y-STR testing and plugging in the values in the Nevgen.org Haplogroup predictor comes up with a 100% probability of the family falling under P312>DF19>DF88>>S4268>Z17112>S17075.

Further needed testing

We need additional direct male-line descendants of William Snow to WGS/NGS test to both confirm the lineage as well as to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
