HARRIS DNA—GROUP 28

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 January 1, 2015.

(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 kit 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. 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.

This grouping was originally part of a larger Group 3; however, some of the kits initially matched with this group had variants from the modal of more than 3. Thus the grouping was split up into 3 separate groups. Five different lines have been submitted which now fall into Group 28.

This group belongs to the R1b1a2 haplogroup. Here are lineage charts (supported by DNA) that fall into Group 28 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 28 up to 37 markers is listed on the HARRIS Y-DNA RESULTS Page.

In order to better compare matches in Group 28, the modal listing has also been posted on Ysearch with a user ID of CV64S. To view the modal listing go to the Ysearch user ID page for CV64S

This modal listing has also been posted at Ancestry.com on its DNA site. For those in Group 28 who have tested (or posted their results for free) with Ancestry.com, you should find a match with Group28Modal 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 may occur every 4 or 5 generations. Some specific markers tested are known to mutate faster than others.

At this time there are at least 3 different progenitors or earliest known ancestors represented in Group 28. Although the DNA appears to match closely, the connection between these lines has not yet been determined.
