This page is intended to present the findings of the project. The DNA sequences associated with the kits are listed at the FTDNA site, which should be viewed alongside this page to help understand the results. The discussions are organised by Haplogroup and set, and should be useful for participants in better establishing the origins of their male-line ancestors. The collation of the trees and interpretations are largely due to Peter Roberts who ran the original project.
Note: Only matched groups are shown on this page. Unmatched sequences are listed on the FTDNA site, and if there has been a family tree submitted for the kit, it can be found by expanding the "kits" tab on the trees page.

In comparing Y-DNA37 markers, which show 2 mismatches, the probability that (124821) and (127798) shared a common ancestor within the last 5 generations is 43.9%.
The kits are thought to be fourth cousins once removed. This seems possible (with a 50% chance) based on the DNA results
Kit #127798 proven Roberts ancestor by traditional paper trails is James ROBERTS (b. Abt 1792-probably Camden District, SC; d. BET. 1870 - 1880-Greene Co., MS). It is thought that James Roberts was probably a son of Isaac Roberts, Sr., born about 1755, North Carolina; died about 1820, Greene Co., Mississippi.
Traces back to Isaac Roberts, Sr., born about 1755, North Carolina; died about 1820, Greene Co., Mississippi.

190135 Born circa 1782 S.C.
48569 Born circa 1766 N.C. or V.A.
Kits 190135 and 48569 (4 mismatches at Y37) have a 53% chance of being related in the past 12 generations.
190135 and 131838 are perfect matches (the kits share a gt-grandfather -i.e. they are second cousins)
