Hi, Karen. Just wondering if you mean yDNA testing specifically for direct patrilineal descendants since autosomal DNA would be unlikely to reveal anything for ancestors that long ago. A 1746 birth date would put John Parker about eight generations back from a living test-taker, maybe nine--a 6g- or 7g-grandparent--making living test-takers 7th or 8th cousins to one another...or separated by 16 or 18 meioses (birth events where DNA recombination occurs). Without any significant pedigree collapse, we hit an effective zero amount of expected, measurable DNA sharing at 14 birth events.
Yes, I should have clarified that, I have my nephew's yDNA and am trying to find if John and Tabitha are really my John's parents. Several people have connected them in various trees but I see no "PROOF".
