DNA RESEARCH

4

A fascinating subject with more twists and turns than one can imagine.

Understanding DNA and its significance is not an easy task. I am far from an expert. Within these reports, I will attempt to explain what has been discovered as a result of autosomal and Y-DNA tests. Who were the earliest Shinabargers, from where did they originate, and how are the families of the Dozen S’s connected? 

Anyone looking for further information, there is a wealth of research available. I will occasionally add updates and summaries because discoveries and connections are constantly being found.

DNA GOALS MET – JUNE 2021

To get the most from this report, I suggest you read at least generations one and two of the Shinabarger histories posted under Family Chronicles. Each will give you additional insight into the families who will be discussed here. 

SHINABARGER DNA RESULTS – October 2020

In the past, I submitted DNA to the National Geographic’s Genographic Project. The Geno Project was launched in 2005 as a research project in collaboration with scientists and universities around the world with a goal of revealing patterns of human migration. Over 1 million people participated through National Geographic’s “Geno” DNA Ancestry kits. The public participation phase of this research project has ended. However, if you are interested in the deep ancestry of Shinabarger, then read the report below. This report, in general, will also apply to any Dozen S’s who tests as a positive relationship with Shinabarger.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC – SHINABARGER REPORT

When it comes to Bunyard DNA results, there are two reports. I submitted by brother’s DNA to this project. After learning my brother and my Bunyard first cousin, in spite of a non-parental event, are of the same Haplogroup with similar ancient beginnings, I created two reports. The first, “Bunyard DNA Results” are discusses the ancient beginnings of the descendants of James Beal Bunyard 1744-1817. The second report, “Richard E. Bunyard DNA” reflects the findings about my specific lineage which is NOT related to James Beal Bunyard. Though both ancestors originated in the same spot and migrated north for a time, eventually they went their separate ways.

The Bunyard National Geographic report is an abbreviated version of Richard’s report. Because both lineages, surprisingly, share the same ancient history, much of Richard’s report also applies to the ancient paternal ancestors of James Beal Bunyard.

    Wonderful. It has become addicting for me as each tests reveals more of our history. I will private message you so you may send me your address. I would love for you to take both a Y-DNA and for Ancestry, which is autosomal.

    Dear Pat, I find your DNA research fascinating ! Thank you for pursuing our history.If you like,I wouldn’t mind being tested.Let me know what to do. Sincerely,Richard Harry Shinabarger

    Hi Kipp, So glad you are testing. The more tests, the better the triangulation and confirmation of relationships. Once done with the histories of Shinabarger, I will post online, hopefully by next week sometime. The DNA summaries will come online after that. They are not easy to write but they are fascinating. The final chapter of the Shinabargers cover my side of the family and somewhat of your grandfather. I do not have a lot and would be glad to include any information you would like to contribute for Kenny and Sue. Seems I remember Kenny worked for Studebaker? Remember him taking us to the plant and test track.
