Just wanted to let everyone know that there is now a Manni and varient spellings (Mani, Mauney, Mohney, Money Mooney) DNA project. This project aims to connect individuals interested in exploring their family history and promote the use of genetic testing to assist genealogical research. All members are encouraged to join in discussions, compare DNA results and share trees relating to the Mani/Manni family names.
If you are a male with one of the included surnames or female and are interested in researching your direct paternal line further, you are welcome to participate in this project. This project study is using the DNA test that looks at a portion of the DNA called the Y-chromosome. The Y-chromosome is unique to males and can be used to identify one's direct paternal line. For this reason, females cannot contribute directly, but can find a male relative (father, brother, cousin, etc.) to be tested as a representative of her line.
