DNA Results

Previous testing

FTDNA's Tracy DNA Project currently does not list anyone claiming Stephen Tracy as their Most Distant Known Patrilineal Ancestor (MDKPA).

NGS/WGS testing

NGS/WGS testing is needed to confirm the prediction (above) as well as potentially further refine the haplogroup.
