Group 028: R-M269 LK=C-FO-NY-OO-PZ-RU

THOMAS (VA 1728) LINE: The Parke Society (PS) uses a system of Lineage Keys, and a further system of identifying each individual in a lineage by their generation from earliest ancestor as well as the individual’s number on the Society’s family group sheets (FGS). For example, Thomas PARKS (VA 1728), the earliest known ancestor in the LK=C line, is identified as [01C1] below. The 01 identifies him as the first generation, ‘C’ denotes the Lineage Key, and the 1 following the ‘C’ identifies his place on the FGS. Thomas’s son John is identified as [02C1]—again, 02 refers to the second generation, ‘C’ the Lineage Key, and 1 is his place on the particular FGS on which he appears. These are the identifying numbers for Thomas and his sons. Daughters also have these identifying numbers, but the Y-DNA project can only trace the direct male descendants.

  • Thomas [01C1]
  • ...John [02C1]
  • ...Thomas [02C2]
  • ...Charles [02C3]
  • ...Samuel [02C4]

This group includes several participants with paper trail connections to Thomas PARKS [01C1]. Thomas PARKS [01C1] was born ca. 1670 and died ca. 1761 in Albemarle Co. Va.. Others in the group below show a genetic connection, but have not yet found the connecting generations to a known Thomas [01C1] male descendant.

118711: 67 marker test

No lineage information at present. At the 67 marker level, participant is a genetic distance of 2 “Tightly Related” from the modal value for this group. 118711 shares a common mutation on marker #21(449) with 73131, making him a genetic distance of 1 from 73131 (also in the “Tightly Related” category.) This suggests that perhaps 118711 shares a line of descent from Thomas>John>Thomas, though further research would be needed to confirm this.
