Aten DNA

Surnames: Aten, Glass
A while back, a descendant of Adrian Hendrickse Aten had his y-DNA tested. The initial results suggested that he was R1b M269+, which didn't tell us much, because R1b M269+ is the largest haplogroup in western Europe.

I upgraded his results recently & was stunned to see that he is actually L21+, which is nested deep inside of M269+. L21+ is most prevalent in the British Isles, particularly Ireland and Scotland.

This tentatively confirms the tradition of Scottish origins for this family.

I think it would make sense for a few more patrilineal descendants of the American Aten family to get tested.

I would be willing to pay for the test of one of the patrilineal Aten descendant of Aaron Kimble Aten (1812-1901)and Dorcas Glass, who were my great-great-great grandparents.
