Welcome to the Bowers DNA Project (written by Steve Bowers in 2015)

The Bowers DNA Project was launched by Terry Barton of in 2005.  Not being a Bowers descendant himself, Terry recruited Robert Strong to assist in the administration of the project.  Besides being a Bowers descendant, Robert has been an active Bowers researcher.  His Bowers research can be viewed at Our Bowers and Anderson Ancestors.  


This has been a terrffic partnership. has provided a host website for this project, tremendous administrative support, and also valuable technical expertise in analyzing the Y-DNA results.  However, as time passed Robert desired to make some changes to the standard format of the WorldFamilies website that have proven to be difficult to accommodate.  Accordingly, it was mutually decided to create a companion website -- one that would be easier for Robert work with -- that would work in tandem with this WorldFamilies website.  That companion website can be viewed at the Bowers DNA Project.  At the pages for each website, you will find a variety of cross-links.  From the standpoint of navigating the pages of this project, we admit this is not the most elegant of solutions, but it is much better from the standpoint of administering the project the way Robert wants. WorldFamilies will continue to assist Robert in matters relating to the Y-DNA results.


To continue, go to Bowers DNA Project , the companion website.
