Interested in the use of the Y chromosome to confirm direct paternal line ancestry.
Peter Roberts's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Peter 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 67 markers, haplogroup I-Z59, FTDNA kit #8867
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup I3c, FTDNA kit #8867
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Peter:
