John Brewer of Sudbury, Massachusetts, Defined by SNP R-S1051

One of the two descendants of John Brewer, of Sudbury, Massachusetts, who has participated in the Brewer DNA Project (FTDNA), has received results of his Big-Y test and has had analysis completed by YFull. The analysis defines the descendant by SNP R-S1051, which is turn names his haplogroup on the Y-DNA Tree.

He can be found on YFull's Experimental YTree, v.4.3 (March 14, 2016) as id:YF05314.

The Brewer DNA Project now has seven ancestral lines defined and placed on the Y-DNA Tree. Links can be found on the Genetics Genealogy page.

More on John Brewer and some descendants can be found of the Brewer Families of New England website. I would like to note that we still do not have Y-DNA testing from a confirmed descendant of Daniel Brewer of Roxbury, Massachusetts. We would very much like to find one (or preferably two) such descendants join the the Project so that a Y-DNA signature can be established for Daniel Brewer. It is possible that we currently have a few descendants of Daniel Brewer who are unable to prove their complete ancestry. If we are able to compare Y-DNA test results from provable descendants we will be able to see if or how they match our current participants and hopefully the information will help them complete their Brewer ancestries.

Finally I will note that Family Tree DNA is running a sale on new DNA tests from April 21 through April 26, 2016.
