It’s time to Celebrate!!Our Dunbar Y-DNA Project has just gone over the 200 Participant mark with many more people following the Projects.You too can become a part of this VERY exciting Project.
We have Dunbar men from all over the world tested:Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Jamaica, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Orkney, Scotland, Shetland, & the USA.
Our Y-DNA database is filled with tested Dunbar men whose most distant ancestors are from: 1. Scotland:Aberdeenshire, Inverness, Shetland, Orkney, Tannadice, Renfrew, Stirling, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Glenbervie, Caithness, Longformacus, Ross & Cromarty, and most importantly three direct male descendants with a paper trail to Gospatric of Dunbar b. 1040 Scotland. 2. Ireland: Wicklow, Tyrone, Wexford, Antrim, Castle Finn, & Dublin. 3. Jamaica: Portland & Lawrence Tavern
Your Y-DNA could match with any of these men but, you probably won’t discover this knowledge without testing.Trust me, I’ve been doing genealogy for MANY years and it wasn’t until my father took this simple Y-DNA test that we discovered we had cousins all over the world.It is a simple cheek swab done in the privacy of your home.No blood, No Pain.
Our Project uses Family Tree DNA to process our test kits.We chose FTDNA because they are the industry leading DNA testing company for genealogy and they have the largest Y-DNA database of any other company in the business.We wanted the BEST for all Dunbar men.You can learn more about Family Tree DNA by visiting their website: http://www.familytreedna.comhttp://www.familytreedna.com or their new FTDNA YouTube Video Channel http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UU-e1BqfubuSdFPHauQwZmlg&feature=plcphttp://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UU-e1BqfubuSdFPHauQwZmlg&feature=plcp They also provide a “Demo” page for everyone to preview what their own personal FTDNA account page will look like and all DNA resources they provide: FTDNA Demo link….just click “Login”:https://www.familytreedna.com/login.aspx?a=demo
