Subject: [DNA] DYS710 Results
Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2008 12:19:58 -0700 (PDT)
We just received our first three results for DYS710 for VICK Y-DNA Surname Project members. We trace our ancestry back to Joseph VICK of Lower Parish, Isle of Wight Co., VA. Joseph first appears in the records there in the 1670s.
Two of the project members are descended from Joseph’s son William. They are sixth cousins in the tenth generation of the line. The other project member is descended from Joseph’s son Robert. This project member is in the 12th generation. He is an eighth cousin two times removed from the other two project members tested for this marker.
The descendant of Robert has 33.2 repeats. The descendants of William have 35.2 and 36.2 repeats. I find it interesting that all have .2 repeats. I wonder what the significance might be. Any ideas what the consistent .2 repeats might tell us? We have results from a descendant of another son of Joseph coming. This marker sure has lived up to its reputation for variability and may be very useful in sorting out our smaller branches on our tree.
