The ROWE project would like to:

Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but those families with a man representing them in the DNA Project will be identified.
Please read the Notes on Pedigrees  before submitting your pedigree, which may be via this link, or via gedcom to the administrator (no dates for the living will be displayed, and it will only be used for the purposes of dna reporting).

Where matches have been found between participants, some additional information may be found on the ROWE detail pages of DNA Surnames, and also check out the Project Diary (Blog).

Many links will open in a new page. In general a name link will take you to either the detail pages on DNA Surnames or a pedigree submitted to the WFN pedigree pages, and an R-nn link will take you to the summary results on this site, but in a new page.
