George Researchers, let's help one another break down those remaining barriers and walls to our research. We need more participants than the 40 we already have to make this work. Even with those we have, there have been some fantastic results in linking or proving a non link. If you are a George surname male, please do the DNA test for your George line. If you are a George female, please have a George male relative in your line do the test. It is simple, non-intrusive...just swab the inside of your jaw....and mail back to the lab. It is much cheaper now at $99 than when it was when the project began, and you can spend that much on library photocopies of George families that are not even related to you. Please check the below website on results obtained thus far in linking George familes, as well excluding those you think may have been related. That Y chromosone remains about the same for up to 14 generations in the male line, and can prove that you and another researcher share a common George ancestor. As a minimum it will significantly narrow your research. So please help us with this.
