Previous Y-DNA testing

Previous Y-STR testing through the Mayflower Society[1] and the Hopkins DNA Project [2] has suggested that the Hopkins lineage belongs to the R1b-M269 Y-DNA haplogroup, which is quite common in Western Europe. Y-STR results (specifically DYS390=23) provide some indication that the Hopkins lineage belongs more specifically to the U106 subgroup of R1b-M269. Y Elite testing will be able to test this and identify a more precise haplogroup classification for the Hopkins lineage.
