ARDERNE/ARDERN DNA PROJECT NOW AVAILABLE
A new DNA project for male descendants of any Arderne or Ardern family has been set up at Family Tree DNA.Our goals are to find descendants of the ancient Arderne families and determine if they were related to each other.The DNA tests can also help determine deep ancestry of Arderne families.FTDNA has an excellent web site giving information on DNA testing and tests that are available.Take a little time to explore the Y-dna, mtDNA, and Family Finder tests and see if one is right for you.Only the Y-dna test for males can determine paternal surname relationship, but the Family Finder which is for both male and female participants can help match you to "cousins" from any of your related families.FTDNA web site for general information is:www.familytreedna.com.
