Hello Gardners! I'm a casual WikiTree user but it looks like I've added over 1200 profiles over the past few years and a couple "Free-Space" pages like the "Gardner Family Lines in New England" linked above. I just added another Free-Space page, since we're stuck at home, that summarizes some of the Y-DNA data from the FamilyTreeDNA Gardner Surname Project. I found a "cool tool" app that clusters the tests and creates dendograms of related haplogroup clades. The page is GARDNER_R-U106_DNA: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:GARDNER%20R-U106%20DNA%20Project Check out the graphs. I noticed the top person in the Brick Wall list above, George Gardiner (Gardiner-38) has some descendants who've done the Y-DNA test. So my small request is that everyone out there who is a Gardner, submit their Y-DNA to be added so we can sort out some of the lines--especially in Tennessee and North Carolina. I'm not a DNA expert but as far as my understanding goes, the more data the better. I also noticed that the WikiTree DNA project categories are a bit dated. A bunch of Gardner profiles(18) were placed in the R1b1b2 category which was renamed to R-M269, R1b1a1a2, almost 10 years ago. Maybe someone else has more experience with this. My info comes from Wikipedia. Bob G.

Hi John, you can post questions/comments on the Gardner Name Study page, the Gardner DNA Project page or on the G2G Forum.  I've updated the DNA Project to include the major haplogroups and have identified several subclades based on individuals who have submitted their Y-DNA results on WikiTree.
