Research Notes


Y-DNA Results FT260099 [3] Previous Y-DNA testing testing through the Mayflower DNA Project, the Rogers/Rodgers DNA Project[4] and the Thomas Rogers of the Mayflower DNA Grouphas identified a Y-STR haplotype for the Mayflower Rogers lineage and has determined that the lineage belongs to the R1b-M269 Y-DNA haplogroup,[5]. NGS/WGS testing One member of the My Rogers Family Tree DNA Project[6] has stated they are a Y-DNA descendant of Pilgrim Thomas Rogers. They also agreed to have a FGC Y-Elite test completed.[7] In addition, A Y-STR match to this kit[8] Has presumably taken a FTDNA Big Y test. The results of these tests documents where the Rogers family falls under: R1b-P312>Z290>L21>DF13>Z253>FGC3268>ZZ6_1>BY43439>FGC59524>FGC59535>FGC59523>FT260099.
