Surname Tips

Today’s tip is explore if there is a DNA Project relevant to your surname. FTDNA is the only company offering projects centred on Surname, Religion or Place. The Guild has an extensive set of DNA pages on their website and these can be read HERE, they are available to non-members with more available to members. The Guild also boasts a number of members who are renowned speakers, many of whom have spoken globally.

On a personal note, the Orlando study does have a DNA project. I do confess that it is not the most active group, but the amount of participants has grown slowly since 2007, when the project was first established.
