A little tongue in cheek regarding my real deep ancestry


See: for general genealogy, Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project and Carpenter Sketches.

The Y-DNA Project is organized into groups and reconstructed ancestor Y-DNA profiles are given where properly triangulated. Lineages are also given on a separate page with mutations to the group mean.

My Y-DNA Haplogroup is R1a1a1b1a with the shorthand code of R-Z282. Marker Z282 has been confirmed by SNP testing. See the following link showing longhand Haplogroup/type with their related SNP markers:

Hi John - I've been having a look at the early Carpenter/Carpentier genealogy on WikiTree and much of it looks like connections have been made between generations based solely on the same name or the fact that they worked as a carpenter without any evidence proving such connections

. I've posed a question on G2G Please reply or add any sources that I haven't come across that support the genealogy as it currently stands.

Yes, there is a list of ONS surnames:

Just a heads up . . . you added your yDNA test information to your profile but this test will not be connected to paternal-line family members unless the Privacy Level is changed to "Private with a Public Family Tree" or higher.

Hi John. I noticed you entered DNA tests for Carpenter-19 and Carpenter-1122. I had to delete them because it's really important that the person whose DNA was tested be entered as the test taker. Be sure to add the tests back if the surname project participants don't mind having a profile on WikiTree that can connect.

I am on WikiTree so infrequently. Even WeRelate where I was more active (see links below)

I am infrequent on, like so many others. I can only touch bases here and there now!

PS: Your profile page here is stretched because of one of the previous messages (it has a space somewhere at the beginning of the line that it shouldn't have). If you delete the offending message, it should put your profile back to the regular width.  :)

Fixed the Carpenter's to reflect 1, 2 3 generation. The numbering was not meant to imply that they used the suffix, just to distinguish them from one another during merges and future new comers and merges. I do this to keep them straight especially when it is such a popular ancestor, and have been trying to correct them to reflect the generation rather than I II III...if you come across any more of these, go ahead and fix them as I did the carpenters. THANKS! Nae

I have found so many errors on WikiTree regarding Carpenters. This includes duplication and older material without documentation.
