I have begun a DNA Surname Project for names which might be variants of each other. Part of the purpose is to find out which names are variants and part of the purpose is to discover which lines are related to each other.
This study requires a male donor with an ALL MALE lineage back to the earliest known ancestor.
mtDNA (through the mother's lineage) is welcome, but these investigations need to have specific goals. I will be happy to help anyone design a comparison study for female lineages where it is possible to do so. Donors may be male or female but their lineage BACK must be ALL FEMALE
NO mixed gender lineages can be analyzed with DNA (i.e., you're female, your father was a MINAR)
Interested parties should email me for more information. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon!
