Looking for a Co-Admin of this BARTLETT DNA Project. I started it in 2002. Pam White was a Co-Admin for several years, and, sadly, she has passed away. If interested, please email me at Thanks

Jim, What does a Co-Administrator do? How much time might it take? I am Kathy Bartlett.

There are 6 in the RG group (Warren Co, NC & UK) who give no details of themselves or their ancestry. This group all have the very rare DYS557=8 mutation. As far as I have been able to establish this does not occur outside the Bartletts of Devon. Is there any way to encourage these people to identify themselves and their forebears?

Stephanie, Are you identifying yourself as one of these six? Can you share your kit number if you are?

I have no idea Steve, if one of the 6 are in my tree. I'm trying to find out.

My kit number is B205881 and my father's kit number which I just uploaded on Sunday is B503828. My father David Schefler, is the son of Thelma Bartlett Scheffler Peterson, who is the daughter of Wyrthy Bartlett who is the son of Jacob Bartlett, who is the son of Hugh Bartlett, who is the son of Solomon Bartlett, who is the son of John Bartlett, who I "think" is the son of Nathaniel Bartlett, but not sure on Nathaniel.

My original Bartlett surname immigrant ancestor was George Bartlett of Guilford, CT born in England abt 1620. My line of descent is Gary 11, Donald 10, Harold 9, D. Clarence 8, H. Russell 7, Hiram 6, Russell 5, Rev. Nathaniel 4, Daniel Jr. 3, Daniel Sr. 2, George of Guilford. Unfortunately, the English origins of George Bartlett who died in Guilford, CT in 1669, are unknown. What is known, is that many of the original settlers at Guilford - of whom George was likely one - hailed from the geographic area the the junction of the English counties of Kent, Sussex & Surrey. My hope in taking the Y-DNA test was to connect up genetically with some UK Bartletts in the intent of determining George Bartlett's English ancestry, but alas, that seems to be a pipe dream.

Welcome, Gary! My Bartlett immigrant ancestor was William Bartlett of Guilford, CT, But he didn't arrive there until more than 20 years after George had died. I know no one has ever discerned a family relationship between the 2 Bartlett families of Guilford. There has been no Y-DNA test on William's descendants yet, as far as I know. My late grandfather was the last male in my line... Maybe in future, we'll find out if there was a relationship or not!

A Bartlett cousin from William's line is going to England soon and she wants to include a visit to the Dorset area. That's where we suspect a connection, with the Frampton area Bartletts... Having been able to have a y-DNA test done could have been helpful but neither of us have any living male Bartletts in our lines. :-(

We have some funds for a Y-DNA test that might show a link to the UK - We can share costs, or for a really good pedigree, we would pay for the test. I, too, would like to get a Match in the UK.

So, pardon my confusion, but my brother and I descend from the TN/NC branch where our earliest ancestor is William Bartlett (NC/TN 1784) we keep getting DNA 12 Matches with many people who are grouped in the Robert Bartlett 1603 VA, DNA group. Would that probably link us to this ancestor- possibly being a brother of someone earlier than William? I am new to DNA so I am confused by what this means? Can anyone help?

The Y-12 for R1b haplogroup is very common to many folks, across many surnames and lines. These Y-12 results cannot be used for any practical matching. Please ignore them.

Hi My name is Jonathan Badham do any of you have Bartletts from Churchstanton Somerset/Devon

I think my Bartletts come from pretty close to Somerset. They seem to hail from Mosterton/South Perrott in Devon. My ggm was Dorothy Bartlett Hull so her mother was a Bartlett who married a Hull

Also is there a place on here for us to see how much percentage of different ethnics we are. I saw a graph pie shaped on a friends and they were able to see they were 10% French, 30 % Spanish ect

they have that on DNA

Considering that borders change or disappear, embracing a nationalist view might not make a lot of sense. Spanish and French aren't ethnicities, right?

HI, when I originally joined this group my DNA test was through and I transferred the data to FTDNA. Recently I did a Y-DNA37 test through FTDNA and wondered how to get those results to this group? Thanks, Fred Bartlett Jr

Fred, Did this get resolved? I didn't think FTDNA accepted Y-DNA results. Jim

From my paternal grandmother, Faye Bartlett (who married a Reeder) and did extensive genealogy research: her handwritten notes to me before her death say 1. William Bartlett b. April 4, 1756; d. Oct 25, 1826 was a Revolutionary War veteran in Virginia's 11th Reg. He had a sister named Sarah b. 1759. Sarah and William's father was Josiah Bartlett who is supposedly the signer of the Declaration of Independence.

I don't believe William 1756-1826 was a RevWar vet - he was in Fauquier Co, VA during the War. Maybe it was a William BARTLETT from the Spotsylvania Co, VA group. And William 1756's father was Thomas BARTLETT c1733-1806, and his father was Thomas BARTLETT c1705-1783 of Richmond Co, VA - these are all in DNA Group B with Haplogroup E1b. Your and my Common Ancestor, James V Bartlett wrote that we were descended from Josiah the Signer, but it turns out not to be true. Jim

For those descendents of Joseph Bartlett of Newton, Mass, (first settler) does anyone have information on his ancestors in England? Born 1640; spouse was Mary Wayte. I do not have information on where he originated within England
Jim Bartlett
March 16 @ 9:02pm
Nathan, I've not ever seen any. If you find someone in England who has a good deep paper tail, and will take a DNA test, we have funds to partially or fully fund such a test. We want men from England to test. Jim

I believe that I am descended from William and Elizabeth Bartlett. Records I possess show that he and his wife came to Albermarle County, North Carolina from the State of Virginia sometime about 1663.

The BARTLETT/BARCLIFTS were in Perquimans Co, NC - I've seen two records for Albemarle Co, VA - one a 1688 deed and one a 1698 Will. A lot of this line is covered in Adelle Bartlett Harper's book: "Family Lines". Two men from this line have matching DNA and this is DNA Group Q. Jim
