Location: Upper Canada
This page describes the Y-DNA testing and matching for the specific line of Wards that settled in Ernestown, Upper Canada in 1793, identified as FTDNA kit IN56228.
This page is Y-DNA results only. All results are already publicly visible and available online. Other DNA tests, such as autosomal (common with 23-and-me and Ancestry) are generally only useful for finding matches within previous four generations and therefore do not go far enough back to be of any use for this lineage.
Ward Surname Project
FamilyTreeDNA maintains a number of Surname projects. Since most surnames are passed father to son, the same as Y-DNA - surnames with Y-DNA can be used to find kits that are related.
The full Y-DNA results can be found on the Ward, Wardle, Warden, Warder, Wardlow Surname Project page. All matches to this line of Wards are contained in Ward Subgroup #5

FTDNA provides a TiP report to show percentage of confidence in two people sharing a common ancestor at the specified number of generations. The results become more accurate the higher the shared test level.
|Num||Kit||Markers Tested||Genetic Distance||# of Generations at % confidence||TiP @ 8 Generations||Interpretation|
|6||N53889||25||2||6||13||16||23||69.35%||Very Distant - Higher test needed|
|7||N10249||12||0||10||24+||24+||24+||40.03%||Higher Test Needed|
