I am trying to contact Thomas Alan Preston but the e-mail address given on his DNA profile is no longer valid.

Several of the participants in Y-DNA testing for the Bedford County, VA PRESTONS have been researching and exchanging information for several years. We have the lineage for all participant at the 12-marker Y-DNA level.
Thomas Alan Preston is the only one whose lineage is unknown to the group and we would very much like to make contact and exchange information. The following are Exact matches at 12 markers:

Larry Dean Preston

John Stephen Preston

Thomas Alan PRESTON

Roy M. Preston

Paul Byron Preston

Joseph Ronald Preston

Joseph A. Preston

I would be glad to share any information I have, and look forward to hearing from another Preston cousin.

What Prestons are in your line? My Dad did his DNA and we believe we are Preston through his father. Long story but I am interested in comparing DNA. My Preston's are Percy Thomas Preston (1875-1941), Henry Preston (1828-1899)Colonel John Preston (1781-1864) Robert Preston (1750-1833) and John Preston (1726-1796). They were originally from Ireland and settled in the Bristol, Washington Cty Va area. Colonel John Preston also married a Preston cousin of his and they are from the Blacksburg VA area.

Thanks!!

Thanks Sonia. I have run into this before and I do not believe any of these Prestons are mine, at least directly. I think there may be some indirect relations, but hard to say for sure. Thank you very much for giving me the info.

Angie,
Your family appears to be of the Walnut Grove, VA line and I've seen some documentation back to Ireland. Can you tell me what company you used for your family DNA Testing and if results for the Walnut Grove Prestons have been posted anywhere?

Thanks,

Sonia
