New Y-DNA Match

A descendant of Richard Hope Guthrie 1821KY-1911KY now has Y-DNA confirmation of his Guthrie Family Group.

This lineage was already inferred to belong to GFG2A – Branch B based on traditional documentation for the family. This test proves it.

KIT 894912
GFG2A – Branch B: Descendants of Robert Guthrie & Miss Darlington > William Guthrie c1726PA-1778SC & Elizabeth Barnett > James Guthrie 1764PA-a1827KY & Jane Carnes > Samuel Guthrie b1800 & Elizabeth Hope > Richard Hope Guthrie 1821KY-1911KY & Sarah Ellen Stewart (2xGGP)

There are currently 47 men matching the GFG2A genetic profile in the project. Five others descend specifically from GFG2A – Branch B.

This is a Y-DNA 37 marker test. About 35 participants have tested at the 111 marker level. The participant has 1 genetic mutation at CDYi compared to the group mode results (most common value). This marker is considered ‘fast moving’ and not especially valuable in determining pattern markers (signs of inherited genetic change) within the group. Several others share the marker difference (mutation), but they are spread across several GFG2A branches.
