HARRIS DNA—GROUP 16

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. 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 kits so far have been submitted for this group.

This group belongs to the R1b1 haplogroup. The modal listing of Group 16 up to 37 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 16, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of WZA9H. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for WZA9H

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 16 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group16Modal 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 16 LINEAGE CHARTS


Lineage #1.—DNA Kit #N7070. This is for the line of Enon Harris (17??-1839). This kit tested with the National Geographic testing company and then transferred the results to Family Tree DNA. This is the same submitter as Kit #42875.

This family’s migration pattern is: Scotland > Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., PA.

This is a 12-marker test that belongs to the R1b1 haplogroup. It matches the 67-marker modal for Group 16 with no variances.

The kit submitter has not supplied a lineage. A few more details from other sources are added below:

1 Enon {16-#42875-#N7070} Harris b: 17?? d: 14 SEP 1839
