DNA bridges gaps in traditional research
by revealing lineages that share the same genetic footprint.
Same Y-DNA = Same Paternal Ancestry
The "MD/PA Family Group" is one of the unique bloodlines
identified by the Guthrie DNA Project.

GUTHRIE FAMILY GROUP: Genetically-matched participants form a family group. All participants within the group descend from a shared Guthrie ancestor. A unique bloodline unrelated to any other family group in the project. This site represents the participants for Guthrie Family Group 2A, aka The Maryland/Pennsylvania Group.
CLUSTER: A sub-group of Guthrie Family Group 2A's global family tree. One or more Branches determined by DNA testing to have similar genetic traits, regional connections or a common written history. Branches in a cluster are more likely to share a more recent common ancestor with each other than the overall Common Ancestor shared by Guthrie Family Group 2A as a whole.
BRANCH: One or more lineages determined by traditional research and/or genetic genealogy to descend from a common ancestor. A sub-group of a cluster.

Genetic genealogy is the key to breaking down the brick walls we face with traditional family history research.
