The information found here is taken from the Brewer DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA (link above) and pertains to results that are similiar enough to conclude that the participating descendant is somehow a descendant of Adam Brouwer (sometimes called Adam Brouwer Berckhoven).

As of January 30, 2011 all results have been combined into one Grid Chart which allows for the test results to be more easily compared. Values that are highlighted in yellow are values that deviate from the model of the ancestor (which in this program is determined simply by majority). Patterns found in the highlighted values may be helpful in narrowing down potential relationships between those descended from the same ancestor (cousins). For example: in the chart below, at marker 9 (allele 439) the model value is 13, however, there are eight participants with the value 14. These eight are descendants of Adam Brouwer's son, Nicholas. In this example we have found a value, at a specific location, that most likely specific to descendants of Nicholas. Future participants who otherwise do not know their ancestry may be able to use this observation to narrow down the potential candidates they may be considering as their ancestor. Please see the description provided on the Jan Brouwer Group page for more background information.

The links to charts that follow are arranged by earliest known ancestor (EKA) and a list of corresponding kit numbers is included in the description of each chart.

 (Note: Kit # 166627 has declined the invitation to submit a pedigree and therefore their ancestry is not included among the charts).
