GOFORTH Surname Project
Haplogroup J2 has been identified as belonging to the descendants of George Goforth born 1565 in Yorkshire England (as described in the book Goforth Genealogy by George T. Goforth). This family group probably migrated across central or southern Europe before it came to England.
Haplogroup R1 has its roots in northern Europe before it came to England. There appears to be a strong DNA correlation between these GOFORTHs and a group researching the PATRICK surname.
