Jacob Back of Wayne County Kentucky
Interesting news has been received by the “Bach to Back” DNA Project.We have been contacted by an individual who claims descent from Jacob Back of Wayne Co KY.A male descendant was DNA tested by Ancestry.com a few years ago and he was given the information that his haplogroup is R1b.Now this is interesting indeed.The two current participants in the Bach to Back DNA Project have both been found to be of another haplogroup.
We need for a descendant of Jacob Back of Wayne County Kentucky to join the project and have his DNA tested to verify this preliminary information.It is always best to have at least two people from a line tested in cases like this where the findings seem to dispute formerly held theories.
Still looking for descendants of all other Back/Bach lines which migrated from Virginia to Kentucky very early.Be sure to join our project before ordering a test because the cost is a little less through a surname project.
