We are seeking new participants for our Crews/Crewe/Cruse/Screws/Cruise DNA study, and right now is a great time for testing as FTDNA is having a sale through August 31: Y-DNA37 orders price REDUCED to $119 (normally $189).
Our project has 25 members and has already established close and or perfect matches between members of the Cruse family and Crews family. Members of the Cruise family could also expect to identify relationships given the linguistic name pattern.
A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA so the tested individual must be a male who wishes to discover his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) This is done with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test. Although more expensive, more markers tested will provide more confidence of where one belongs in a family tree. Females who would like to check their direct paternal line should have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test.
