The Broket Y-DNA Project — North American participants

Written records will never make connections between some Broket Groupings and Clans, but Y-chromosome analysis can. For your convenience, the North American participants are listed here separately. For the overarching Broket Y-DNA project see this separate page, and for the Table of Results see this separate FTDNA page.

This North American section of the overall Broket DNA project currently has 16 participants.1 This has enabled major breakthroughs and understandings of the descent of many modern-day USA Brocketts, not possible by means of paper records alone. Scientific certainties have been established through Y-DNA comparison. But it has also raised some new questions, which require more evidence to answer. That means we need more participants. Do make contact, we want you to take part.

This page provides links to individual pages for each North American participant. As far as possible, documentary evidence is supplied for each generation stepping back, starting with the latest deceased carrier of the Y-DNA. We are working to complete the pages. If you’re interested in one that isn’t yet published, please make sure to check back in a while or else send a message and we’ll let you know when it is.

Genetic Group 3 contains participants who trace their descent from the 17th C immigrant John Brockett of New Haven. Results from descendants of two or more of his sons match at genetic distances of 0-3, thus validating their lines from him.

[1] To be precise the project currently has 14 participants and access to the results of 2 others. If you look at the public FTDNA page just mentioned, you will only see 14, but for simplicity of discussion and without any breach of confidentiality, we treat the number of participants as 16.
