March 20, 2016 – The PFWW received an email today from a member who traces his line back into Manakintown, Virginia. The email states that he has expanded his test to a full 67 markers and that it still matches 100% with the other 67 marker test of another member who also traces his Pembertons back to the same colonial village. So this line is now very deeply identified.
However, the really exciting emailed news is that he has also submitted his DNA to Ancestry’s ethnicity test and found that he is only 4% Western European, but 39% British, 32% Irish and 15% Scandinavian. So he is 71% Unitied Kingdom and less than 5% potentially French.
It is now clear that the so-called French Huguenot Pemberton line is not French at all.
