Surnames in this Project:
Thisp oject is open to any male of any of the listed surnames or to any man believing that he is descended from one of those names or variants of those names. If you are not sure about your name, please contact me at:  Participants are sought from all parts of the world.                                                  


Project Discussion: The DNA information is to be used in conjunction with historical and traditional research. DNA results do not often “prove” a relationship, but can be quite helpful in guiding research. If a DNA profile does not match traditional genealogy, a hypothesized relationship may be incorrect.  At other times DNA results may point to an unknown adoption in the family, or some other so-called non-paternity event.

The tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's ... father's line). Females should look for a brother or cousin or more distant male relative with that surname to be tested.

Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of their test do not tie to the Surname Project.
