A lot of people ponder whether all Tidys/Tideys are related or where their Tidys come from. Has anyone ever thought about setting up a Tidy Surname DNA Project? In case you are unfamiliar with what Surname DNA projects are please see the following link for a quick description:-
Basically it would enable Tidys to prove their relationship to other Tidys. Unfortunately I can not take part as it needs male Tidys to be tested (the Y-DNA is only passed down the paternal line) and Tidy is not my paternal line.
However, if there are male Tidys out there perhaps you can take advantage of this science and shed more light on the Tidy surname.
