This family likely originated in England.


One descendant each from two different sons of George Emery Goff (b. 1769) match each other.


Haplogroup is relatively rare among men of European descent. Kit 105210 has been SNP-tested M78+ V65+ V13- V22- V36- by FTDNA. Note that DYS425 is null for kit F105210, which is consistent with research that shows E-M35, which is upstream of E-V65, is known for a null value at DYS425.


As with many Goff/Gough genetic families, the best chance to extend the lineage is through encouragement of Gough/Goff males in GB to take a YDNA37 test.
