    Research is ongoing related to the ancestry of Mayflower passengers. New discoveries (especially related to the wives of Mayflower passengers) are being made almost every year. Most of the passengers were of rather humble origins, so tracing their ancestry to the "Dark Ages" is impossible. However, with the advances in DNA technology, we are able to learn some more information about the direct male line (Y-DNA) and (to a much lesser degree) the direct female line (mtDNA).

    As with most things related to genealogy, patience is truly a virtue.

    I have been spending most of my current research time contributing to the Mayflower DNA wiki. A wiki is ideally a collaborative effort, where volunteers contribute and edit posts (think wikipedia). This Mayflower DNA wiki works on discovering, identifying and publishing the Y-DNA and mtDNA of DNA passengers (and their spouses) and has started to branch out to include the Y-DNA of sons-in-laws of Mayflower passengers.

    The creator of this wiki has a high-level job in the genetics field, and has stated they are currently unable to devote time to this worthwhile project. I have been a major contributor to this project, and would like to see the project used by more individuals, and expand in size.

    I readily admit some profiles are much better documented than others. I had originally concentrated on my own personal lines, but have expanded to work on all of the passengers. While folks are unlikely to be able to be added on as editors to this wiki (due to the workload of the creator), I would be happy to receive any additions/corrections/etc. to add to the profiles (and properly credit the work, whether by name or anonymously). These additions/corrections/etc. should be emailed to me PERSONALLY (wing DOT genealogist AT gmail DOT com) rather than posted to this forum.

    Several Mayflower passengers, and their sons-in-laws fall under U106, but others fall under P312, I1 and even some rarer haplogroups crop up.
