We need as many participants as possible in order to uncover information not provided in paper records and discover which Pettypool family groups are related. If you have ever thought about being tested for the Pettypool surname DNA Project or considered sponsoring a male Pettypool relative to be tested and were held back because of the cost, now is the time to act. Between now and August 31, 2008, the cost for a test of 37 markers (the number recommended for disentangling lineages) has been greatly reduced. Please contact me as soon as possible for details.
