    Lightbulb Mayflower DNA forum (under Genealogy)

    I would like to request a new sub-forum under Genealogy for Mayflower DNA. Their is a wiki https://mayflowerdna.org/wiki/index....er_DNA_Project under development for both Y-DNA (NGS testing) as well as mtDNA for the female passengers.

    I have PM'd KWheaton (Genealogy Moderator) about this and she stated as a moderator she does not have the ability to add a new forum.


    Thanks!

    Excellent idea! When they get their autosomal project up and running I may be eligible to join (via Resolved White).

    Autosomal DNA will certainly be a "sticky wicket". Not all descendants will end up with DNA segments from their Mayflower ancestor, and even shared segments wouldn't automatically mean the segment(s) came from the Mayflower Passenger (as people will likely be related multiple ways). I am also anxious to see what can be done with autosomal testing.

    A couple of years ago I started an experimental Rehoboth, MA atDNA project. At the time it was the only project based on residence in a single town and the requirements were to have one or more pre 1750 residents of Rehoboth. At the time I had no idea whether their would be shared DNA after such a long time frame. It took awhile for any shared atDNA to become evident but over time (at least the last time I checked) 2/3 of the people shared DNA with at least one other member. That does not of course reflect the DNA of the early residents as the shared DNA could be coming from a multitude of places. The unexpected by-product of the project was to accumulate the Y-DNA of the founding families' patriarchs. I would expect a similar outcome from a Mayflower project. (I have 6 known Mayflower families [2 proven by cousins to the Mayflower Society--the others not attempted] but I carry neither the mtDNA and obviously no Y-DNA so my only benefit would be if they had atDNA.)

    One thing I have recommended to my participants is that the enter REHOBOTH as a surname which makes it easier to search for other members of the project. Adding MAYFLOWER might also be good. I also have a separate website that some participate in (voluntary) that lists their ancestors that lived in Rehoboth. https://sites.google.com/site/wheato...me/rehoboth-ma

    Let us know when its up.
