Group 17 - Descendants of Pierre Charpentier-220327 in France, Germany & America including those who have been Y-DNA tested. Those members are part of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project and are defined as Group 17.
Descendants are determined genealogically and by genetic Y-DNA testing. One descent line has a "DETACHED GENEALOGICALLY" ancestor which indicates that those descendants are genetically related but NOT genealogically connected. Please read the notes.
This line is of French origin and some descendants went to Germany. In time, both groups had descendants who went to America.
The dominant surnames of this Group 17 include Charpentier, Carpenter, & Sherbondy. This includes similar surnames of Cherpantier, Sharbonda, Sharbondy, Sherbonda, Sherbondeaux & Sherbundy with other slight variants. These surnames are due to phonetic spellings arising from translations from French to German and French to English including Anglicization into the English “Carpenter.”
The number after the surname is a record information number (RIN) from the Carpenter Cousins Project master genealogical database. See: The Carpenter Cousins Project
These Group 17 descendants are in two categories.
1) Those both genetically and genealogically connected. This includes those who are reasonably believed to be related but are not proved. Read their NOTES.
2) Those that match genetically but are NOT connected genealogically. This family descendant line is listed as "DETACHED GENEALOGICALLY." This is a technique to provide their lineages in and to recognize them for their genetic connection.
Group 17 is genetically distinct from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project. It is unique in its genetic profile.
