New Genetic Genealogy Page

A new Page, "Genetic Genealogy" has been added to this website. The link can be found in the column on the right under "Pages."

On this page are found links to websites and webpages that should be of help to those who wish to learn more about genetic genealogy.

We have had a handful of Brewer DNA Project members take the Big-Y test offered by FamilyTreeDNA, and then follow up with analysis of their results by YFull. This has allowed us to place descendants of Jan Brouwer, of Flatlands, L. I., and George Brewer, of Brunswick, VA, on the YFull Experimental YTree. Links to the current placement of those descendants are also included on the new Genetic Genealogy page.

As more members of the Brewer DNA Project take the Big-Y test and follow through with analysis at YFull, links to their positions on the Experimental YTree will be added. If any current members of the Brewer DNA Project have already taken the Big-Y and have had analysis and placement by YFull, and would like to be included with a link, please e-mail me with your identifying SNP and the name of your earliest known Brewer/Brower (etc.) ancestor, and I will add a link.

We would especially like to see some descendants of Adam Brouwer take the Big-Y test and follow through with analysis at YFull.

I hope you find the links useful. More will be added as they are found.
