I am writing a book and I would like to know how many Gardner families are out there?
What is your DNA? R1b U152? U106? I1? R1a? G? J2?
My DNA is R1b1b2a1a2d3/U152 L2+, found in the Alps of northern Italy.
I believe I descended from Sir Osborn Gardner, a knight, and the first to have the name.
It could be that I descended from one of the Scottish warriors of Clan Jardine or Clan Gordon.
Possible Surname Origins
1. Sir Osborn Gardner descendants
2. Clan Jardine
3. Clan Gordon
4. Gardyne, Scotland
5. German immigrants, French immigrants, etc.
Are there any "proven" descendants of Sir Osborn Gardner out there with DNA results?
