Exciting New Happenings at the Bradshaw DNA Project

Classification: Query
Surnames: Bradshaw Bratcher
Please take a look at the latest changes to the Bradshaw DNA Project at http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/bradshaw/. Co-administrators Alice Bratcher and Mark Arslan have made a number of improvements and additions to the y-Results ( http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/bradshaw/results ) and Patriarchs ( http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/bradshaw/pats ) pages.

Is your Bradshaw family represented in this project yet? To participate in the y-chromosome DNA testing, you will need a direct male descendant of your Bradshaw ancestor (since only males carry the y-chromosome, which they inherit from their father). This will help you to determine which Bradshaw family you belong to, and get in touch with other researchers working on your family. It will also save you the time of trying to connect to unrelated Bradshaw families.

For example, one significant finding is that there were a number of different (unrelated) Bradshaw families in colonial Virginia, who then spread to adjoining states like North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Being able to sort out these different families is now possible with a combination of DNA testing and research with primary records.
