Welcome to the Yarbrough DNA Project!
For many years, it was believed that most, if not all, Yarbroughs were descended from Richard Yarborough, b. 1615 in England, d. 1702, in Virginia. Richard, "Old Richard" or "The Immigrant", immigrated to Virginia ca 1642. He was joined shortly afterwards by several other Yarboroughs, but the relationships, if any, are still unknown. Results of our Project to date indicate there are nine family groups in the New World and two in England. However, we require additional data and encourage all who have not yet been tested to do so and to allow us to include the results in our database.
Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. These 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.

This Family Project is started to:
1. Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page)
2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches
