5 more results are now availablefor descendants of Jesse showing a different DNA signature compare toMichel the Acadian. They are available on y-search. Org under kit # 116680,227594, 4H6KV, R35QT and KSDANC.




As we can see from these results, the modal haplotype of the descendants of MichelForest Acadian are nowhere near the descendants of Jesse de Forest.

According to latest tests, the Forest from Acadia are part of the North-SouthCluster...R-P312 and the only ones testing with 14-19-10 at position DYS 437,DYS 448, and DYS H4 according to Henry Zender administrator of the R-P312 andSubclades Project. According to the latest SNP test (Z220+, Z196+, Z209+ andnegative for Z218-, Z216-, Z214- ).


It is increasingly apparent thatthe more recent origins of the Forest from Acadia is likely more centeredtoward the north region of France.


Further SNP test from the Forest from Acadiain 2014 determine our current classification to be R-Z295…and more results tocome in the coming months.
