HARRIS DNA—GROUP 13

Compiled by Glenn Gohr

*This is a partial summary. It may take several weeks for any updates to this page after the last update from the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page. This is a time-consuming project.

Last updated April 1, 2014.

(Contact the webmaster with any further updates.)

This is an ongoing project seeking to chart out lines of descent that have been DNA tested as shown on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. Information is based on DNA results, lineage information supplied by kit submitters, Bible records, vital records, legal documents, census records, family histories, internet sources, etc. In some cases the paper trail and/or information found on the web or other sources may be in error. Please view this information as a tool and not as proven fact.

NOTICE: Information presented in these webpages is not to be construed as PROVABLE FACTS. It is up to the user to verify all information that he/she receives. Some information has been provided by kits submitters and their own research. Other information has been added from other sources. Additions and corrections are welcome.

Lineage information in brackets { } lists the Group Number and the DNA Kit Number as found on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. The kit numbers are listed in the same order as presented on the Harris Y-DNA Results Page. If you are looking for a specific kit number, click CONTROL and F at the same time. Then do a key word search by kit number or name of earliest-known ancestor. Additional information will be included as more DNA markers are tested and as more participants match up with this grouping.

Four lines so far have been submitted for this group.

This group belongs to the R1b1 haplogroup. Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 13 of the Harris Y-DNA Results. All spouses are not shown—only the ones that are listed as the parent of the generation that follows. For questionable generations, the names are preceded by an asterisk *. This means the connection between the person with an asterisk and the previous generation are unproven.

The modal listing of Group 13 up to 67 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 13, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of J6EJW. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for J6EJW

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 13 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group13Modal and surname Harris.

For an exact match to this group, the submitter must be a male with the HARRIS surname, be from the same haplogroup, and the DNA markers from his kit number should match exactly with these results. In most cases there will be at least one variation in DNA marker values. If the two test kits are from close relatives, then the variation is due to normal mutations of DNA. DNA mutations usually occur every 3 or 4 generations. Some specific markers tested are known to mutate faster than others.

HARRIS DNA GROUP 13 LINEAGE CHARTS


Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #82686—Ysearch ID #TN3NF. This is for the line of Kenneth William Harris (1930-????) of Provost, Alberta, Canada. The submitter of this kit is an adoptee, but he has knowledge that his biological mother was a Cameron and his biological father was Kenneth William Harris, both from Canada. Beyond that the lineage is unknown. Because of the close DNA match to Kit #8967, the submitter hopes there is a connection with that lineage.

This family’s migration pattern is: Canada> Provost, Alberta Canada.

This kit’s Ysearch user ID is TN3NF. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for TN3NF

This is a 67-marker kit that matches the 67-marker modal for Group 13, except for a variance in marker 13. This kit belongs to the R1b1b2 haplogroup. The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below.

1 Kenneth William {13-#82686} Harris b: 1930 d: UNKNOWN

Lineage #2.—DNA Kit #8967—Ysearch ID #R52J5. This is for the line of Jacob Harris (ca. 1802-aft. June 1880) of Lawrence Co., Kentucky (Generation #1). Some researchers suggest that he could possibly be the son of William Harris (ca. 1743-1848) of Culpeper Co., VA and Wilkes Co., NC who is the progenitor of DNA Kit #18813 found in Group 6. However there are at least 3 variants from this DNA kit and the kits in Group 6. Additional DNA testing of related family members and/or a better paper trail would be helpful.

This kit’s Ysearch ID is R52J5. Additional information on this DNA kit and the paternal line can be found on the Ysearch user ID page for R52J5

This family’s migration pattern is: Ashe Co., NC > Wilkes Co., KY > Knott Co., KY > Kanawha Co., WV.

This is a 67-marker kit that matches the 67-marker modal for Group 13, except for a variance in marker 24. This kit belongs to the R1b1b2a1a1 haplogroup which is a subset of the R1b1 haplogroup.
