yDNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists!

  • yDNA tests allow genealogists to verify their father's father's...father's paternal ancestry.
  • yDNA information can be very powerful when combined with traditional paper trails.

The following Surnames are some of the varints of SEARLE:

Sarles, Sarells, Searl, Searle, Searls, Searles, Serl, Serle, Sirls, Surles, Surls.
(If your surname is not included please contact the Project Administrator.)

The Searle Project is open to all Searle families, with any spelling variant,  from any location.

The Searle DNA Project was started to:

  1. Help researchers from common or related families work together to find their shared heritage.
  2. Identify how the participant's families are connected, both genetically and through paper trails.
  3. Identify and confirm genetic Lineages of ancestral families.
  4. Ultimately catalog pedigrees and genetic connections of all of the known project families.

Participating in the Searle DNA Project provides:

  • The participant's genetic DNA, which is very close (and sometimes identical) to his earliest known ancestor.
  • The participant's "deep" ancestry (Haplogroup), which identifies the paternal ancestor's prehistoric origins.
  • A sense of camaraderie, which is particularly strong for those who share a genetic ancestry
  • Stimulation to family research and renewed sharing of information.
  • A wider sense of identity and relationship, as we begin to realize how much we are a World Family.
  • A chance to compare your genetic ancestry with other Searles.
  • Your genetic matches who do not share our surname.
  • The knowledge to understand our ancestors better - particularly where the records have been lost
