Group 14 - Descendants of Frederick Zimmerman-222935 of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
This group is part of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project as Group 14.
Group 14 was once thought as being part of Group 5 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
But the genetic profile or genetic fingerprints disprove this.
Is it possible there was a Non-Paternal event (NPE)?
Yes, but it is more likely to be another Zimmerman line that came from Switzerland or Southern Germany or near by.
Some researchers claim that a Hans-Christroph b. 1691 in Wurtemberg, Germany as father of this line. But, proof lacking.
Descendants are determined genealogically and by genetic Y-DNA testing.
Descendants match the genetic profile for Group 14 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
Group 14 is unique from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.
Especially Groups 5, 9 and 11 which also claim lineage from Switerland and Southern Germany
These Zimmerman lines have a reasonable belief of genetic relatedness even though some are not proven. Please read the notes.
The number after the surname is a record information number (RIN) from the Carpenter Cousins Project master genealogical database. See: The Carpenter Cousins Project
