Chowning Family (Family Tree DNA)
The Chowning Family surname project, a Family Tree DNA project, was started in March of 2013. The goals of our project are: 1. Help family researchers connect and work together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and DNA testing. 2. Confirm genetic relationships and add weight to lineage proofs where the paper trail is weak and fragmented. 3. Discover information that will help to crumble those genealogical "brick walls." All surname spelling variants, regardless of location, are welcome to join our family project (i.e., Chowning, Chewning, Tuning...) The full value of DNA testing for genealogical purposes can only be realized when there are enough test participants from different family lines for comparison, so we are actively seeking other project participants.
