Our research has discovered that many people in the project are decended from a fairly small number of large Jenkins Familes. Once we have discovered multiple descendants from a family we can confirm the likely Y Chromosone DNA signature of that founder. Once this is accomplished we have established as a goal , identifying all the Jenkins surnamed descendants of that founder. In this way new participants can use the DNA data in conjunction with our geneaological research to establish their connection to the family.
Each founder identified should have a "sponsor" who is responsible for maintaining the data on this founder.
Thus far we have established a number of "founder" Jenkins.
