There is a DNA Project underway for any variation of the surname of Fanning. Information can be found at www.familytreedna.com.-- Enter the name Fanning under surname. The project administrator is cathy Stoppel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am hoping some male Finans will join in this project to see if their surname is related to the other spellings of Fanning. I am a participant in this project for genealogical purposes only.
