A New Brewer-Lanier Pedigree Page

We have published a new Brewer/Lanier Pedigree page for use in conjunction with the Brewer DNA Project's sub-group labeled "Lanier-Brewer." This new page replaces the old page found at the Brewer-Family.org website titled "Welcome to the FTDNA Project Page for George Brewer/Sarah Lanier Descendants." So that it is clear, we no longer recognize this page at the Brewer-Family.org website. The official, and to the best of our ability, correct pedigrees are now found at Brewer/Lanier Pedigrees.

Brewer DNA Project Pedigrees is the main page for this website. Here you will find links to pedigrees for participants arranged by group as determined by the participant's Y-Chromosome DNA results.

The Y-DNA Results Chart is found at the website hosted by Family Tree DNA.

We strongly suggest that all participants in the Brewer DNA Project, especially those in the Brewer/Lanier Group, upgrade their tests to at least the 67 marker level, and preferably to the 111 marker level. We are finding that test results reported at the 37 marker level or less (25 and 12), are insufficient for identifying markers that may point to a specific line of ancestry. In other words, we need more results at the higher levels in order to try and identify specific mutations that could identify certain descendants, and specific lines of descent from the progenitor, George Brewer.

We would welcome corrections and updates to the pedigrees as currently published, and would of course welcome pedigrees from those who have already tested but have not yet submitted a pedigree. We presently have seventeen Brewer/Lanier participants who have not submitted a pedigree. For some guidance on compiling a pedigree please see the post of December 26, 2014.

We also welcome new members to the project. For specifics on joining please see the main page at the Brewer DNA Project website.
