Last Update - March 2016

As of now we have 32 sets of Y-DNA results, with one more sample in the lab. Even with such a small sample number we have already gained a lot of knowledge on several of our lines being studied, and some interesting puzzles on two lines where we have close matches, but to people with very different surnames. Part of what we've got so far has been to link together two pairs of tree where we could not find a paper trail.

We also have a growing number of donors taking autosomal DNA tests. Although not really part of a One-name study these all add to the overall picture - and every one is an opportunity for new links to be added.

We also have several results looking for more volunteers to match with, and some that should match according to the paper trail but surprisingly do not - so we need more samples from those lines to find out why.

We will always welcome new people to join the group and add their DNA profile to the database.

We do not publish the identities of the people who have donated their DNA (unless they specifically tell us that it is OK), but we do show what families they belong to and how they link - that's the whole purpose of doing this. The table below shows an outline of what we have so far.
