- WFN has been providing DNA Information, Websites, and Administration to FTDNA Surname DNA Projects since 2004 (About Us).
FTDNA and WFN have a long-standing relationship (Learn more).
Surname (Y) DNA testing is one of the newest tools available to genealogists. Y-DNA tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way.
The Naylor surname has its earliest roots in the United Kingdom. There are major groups of Naylors in Ireland and England. We are also aware of Naylors (of various spellings) in the USA that claim to have German ancestors.
This Family Project intends to:
1. Help researchers work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page)
2. Identify the DNA of the various trees being researched to determine if they are related at some point or if the surnames were derived separately. We are especially interested in seeing if the many English Naylors, mainly with roots in Derbyshire, Lancashire, Lincolnshire and Yorkshire, have DNA in common and can be connected to the same tree.
3. Compile trees of the ancestor families and separate their branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches.
4. Provide assistance to all Naylor descendants in this project with analysis of their autosomal at-DNA test results — Family Finder or Relative Finder.
