Oyster Bay Wright DNA Test Upgrade

The DNA test of the Oyster Bay Wright family descendant is in the process of being upgraded to 67 markers. This will help to positively identify which group in the Wright DNA Project is the Oyster Bay group. While it looks very likely that the pink group at the top of the page of Haplogroup R1b1 and Subclades results, starting with kit number 235938, is the correct group, the upgrade to 67 markers is necessary to be certain of this. If the pink group is indeed the Oyster Bay group, these results may help to solve the mystery of the ancestry of at least one Wright family of Virginia, and may clarify the migration of some of the Oyster Bay descendants after they left New York. Results of the test upgrade are due by the middle of August.
