Group 4 and 38 - Descendants of an unknown Zimmerman-222353
likely of Switzerland
who came to North America in various emigrations

Group 4 & 38 - Descendants of an unknown Zimmerman-222353 likely of Switzerland who came to North America in various emigrations and who are part of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

Descendants are determined genealogically and by genetic Y-DNA testing.

Most of Group 4 are "DETACHED GENEALOGICALLY" which indicates that those descendants are genetically related but not genealogically connected to any main portion. These lines have a reasonable belief of genetic relatedness even though not proven. Please read the notes and the Introduction section.

Group 4 is of Swiss or maybe German origin and came to North America via various emigrations.

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 Descendant lineages include those who have been Y-DNA tested and are part of Group 4 and its sub-group Group 38 of the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project.

These Group 4 descendants are in two categories.
1) Those both genetically but not genealogically connected. This includes those who are reasonably believed to be related but are not proved. Read their NOTES.
2) Those that match genealogically but are NOT connected genealogically such as members of Group 38. Group 4 starts out with a person labeled as "DETACHED GENEALOGICALLY." This is a technique to provide the descent lineages and to recognize them for their genetic connectiveness.

Group 4 is genetically distinct from other Carpenter/Zimmerman groups within the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project. And this includes Group 38 which is connected genealogically to part of Group 4.
