My last name is Cates. I know I am a descendant of James Cate from Portsmouth, NH, USA in the early 1600s.
I hope I don't confuse anyone with what I'm about to same. I had my DNA tested a few years ago and my haplogroup was confirmed R1b1a2a1a1a1, U106 and U198 positive. There is a very slight spike of those who are positive who are from the Netherlands. So I've searched common surnames of Netherland to see if any deviations of Cate showed up. Hence, why I am here.
I'd be interested in knowing if any Ten Cate have had thier DNA tested. I would welcome any thoughts - opinions?
