Oriel Septs of Ireland Project- Doherty, Dorrity
I have just launched a new geographic DNA project: "Oriel Septs of Ireland."
Because the "Dorrity" of the surname of O Doherty ( O Dochartaigh in Gaelic) is listed by historians as "A corrupt version of Doherty found in Oriel," we have chosen to add Dorrity to our list of those eligible to join the project.
The Kingdom of the Oriel included the Counties of Armagh, Fermanagh, Tyrone, Monaghan, Louth and south Down, in the area that is now Northern Ireland, so we will be particularly looking for families who might have come from that area. We will accept Dohertys and O'Dohertys, if they might have come from that area.
If you have already been Y-DNA tested at FTDNA, there will be no additional expense involved in joining the Oriel Project. You are allowed to belong to a geographic project, in addition to your surname project.
If you have not been Y-DNA tested, you can both join the Oriel Project, and order a Y-DNA test kit, at our project web site:
By ordering through our project link, you will also be given our group's discounted price.
Or, you can just google FTDNA, do a search on Dorrity or Dorherty, and you will find our Oriel_Septs listed there.
I do not sell DNA test kits, nor do I make any money from the sale of DNA test kits. I am strictly a volunteer for the Oriel Septs of Ireland DNA Project.
