Descendants of Thomas Carpenter-11692 of Virginia
Descendants are part of the Carpenter Cousins Project, but have NO DESIGNATED GROUP.

MAJOR UPDATE - 7 June 2022 - Two descendants have Y-DNA tested. Many Thanks to Todd Carpenter and his sisters!
The 37 marker Y-DNA markers clearly place them into Group 7 of the Carpenter cousins Y-DNA Project!
SEE THE GROUP 7 descendant report on the left side of the web page at:

Descendants are genealogically listed AND WE NEED (DONE!) at least two biological male Carpenter descendats to help determine the genetic ancestry via Y-DNA testing.

Male Y-Chromosome DNA testing can help determine the genetic ancestry via genetic genealogy triangulation. By comparing the genetic Y-DNA profiles or genetic fingerprints we have a reasonable belief of possibly matching the known genetic profiles of Group 2 or Group 3 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

Group 2 are descendants of William Carpenter born about 1610 in England who came to America in 1635 and who settled in oresent day Providence, Rhode Island.

Group 3 are descendants of William Carpenter b. about 1605 in England who came to America in 1638 and who settled in Rehoboth, Massachusetts.

Y-DNA testing allows the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project to tell the genetic difference between these two groups and many others.

The number after the surname is a record information number (RIN) from the Carpenter Cousins Project master genealogical database. See: The Carpenter Cousins Project

There ARE NO MALE Y-DNA descendant lineages who have been Y-DNA tested on this Carpenter line. WE NEED Y-DNA samples from this line! PLEASE HELP!

By volunteer Y-DNA testing we can determine a genetic profile or genetic fingerprint that may MATCH or it maybe unique from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
