I found this Speer/Speir/Spear DNA project website online today.
I am willing to transfer my DNA results to this project if that's possible. However, it appears that George Speer is not active anymore. Is there anyone else out there that is administering this project?
I got my DNA results through ancestry.com.au
My great,great grandfather was William Speer born 1802 Ballynougher, Londonderry, Northern Ireland and died there in 1872. My great grandfather James Speer emigrated to Australia in the 1860s.
It's difficult to trace back further than William Speer although I suspect that his father, my great, great, great grandfather was probably John Spier also living at Ballynougher in the 1829 Griffiths Evaluation census (can't prove it though).
Interestingly, my DNA ethnicity says I am 36% Irish, 22% western Europe,
21% UK (mostly my mother's side I would think), 14% Scandinavian &7% other.
