John has lived in West Los Angeles, CA, Raleigh, NC, Boulder, CO, Brookfield Center, CT, and since 1982 has lived in Austin, TX. All of these moves were made while John worked for IBM. John joined IBM in 1967 and retired from IBM in 1997.
John is a direct patrilineal 8th great grandson of Henry Kingman the first Kingman to emigrate from England to America in 1634-5. Note that Henry was just one of John's 512 8th possible great grandfathers, but John's surname and Y-DNA came only from him.
Paternal relationship is confirmed through Y-chromosome DNA testing. Peter Kingman and John Kingman match on 37 out of 37 markers (see YSearch IDs D8NMD and KFTAS) thereby confirming their direct paternal lines back to their MRCAHenry Kingman (born 1701). John and Peter are 6th cousins.
Y-chromosome DNA testing confirms that Gerald Kingman and John Kingman most likely share a direct patrilineal ancestor in a genealogical time frame. Their results match on 33 out of 37 markers (see YSearch IDs YUH8Z and KFTAS). No MRCA has yet been determined as John's ancestral line terminates with Henry Kingman who emigrated from England to America in 1634 and is thought to be of Frome, Somerset, England, and the Gerald's terminates with George Kingman and probably extends to John Kingman born c1640 in Frome, Somerset, England.
A maternal DNA relationship is pending confirmation between John Kingman and his fourth cousin once removed Denny Brooks who have a 57 cM match on Family FInder with a longest block of 14. Another cousin with matching DNA who is descended from Joseph Brooks or his ancestor is needed to provide confirmation via DNA triangulation.
For an idea of how much each of your ancestors contributed to your genetic makeup (excluding your X and Y chromosomes), consider that you have 30,000 genes. Your mother and father each contributed 50% of their genes (15,000) to you. Since the number of ancestors you have doubles each generation you go back, you could have 2,048 different ninth great-grandparents. If so, the genes you have in common with of each of them would be less than 0.05% of your genetic makeup (about 15 genes out of 30,000)
WikiTree Advanced Directive
It may seem morbid, but in the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for a very long time, in the event of my incapacitation or death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to the following WikiTreers, whether or not they are currently on my Trusted Lists.
John Kingman's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with John or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-BY1823, Ysearch KFTAS, FTDNA kit #N145956 +
Y-Chromosome Test 15000 markers, haplogroup R-CTS12058, Ysearch KFTAS
Peter Kingman :
Y-Chromosome Test 37 markers, haplogroup R-P312, Ysearch D8NMD
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test HVR1 and HVR2, haplogroup J1c5, Mitosearch KTFAS, FTDNA kit #N145956
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with John:
Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum.
