It is a popularly held belief that there are two distinct MCMANUS families, both Irish, one emanating from the MAGUIRE'S of Fermanagh and the other from the O'CONNOR'S of Roscommon. An objective of this project is to test this hypothesis through the use of the Y (male)chromosome. Participant's results and alysis are provided for comparison.
Our Project Goal:To establish a growing database of MILLETT DNA supported lineages to aid in genealogical research for family generations to come. It is our hope that many MILLETT families will participate in this project allowing us to develop a scientifically proven DNA database of MILLETT lineages and specific family groups. Please, contact as many MILLETT researchers and male MILLETT family members as you can to encourage their participation in our Project to help to ensure its success.
The Clan Morrison Society of North America (CMSNA) is administering a DNA project to allow interested parties to utilize Y-chromosome DNA testing as a tool in their family history research. Participation in the project is welcome from anyone of MORRISON or associated surname descent. Membership in CMSNA is not required for participation in this project. Surnames commonly associated with MORRISON include GILMORE, JUDGE and BRIEVE, however spelled.
The MOULD Surname DNA Project was created to develop a collection of various MOULD family groups who descend from the same male MOULD ancestor. DNA analysis provides a tool for identifying participants who share a common male ancestor; and, when used in unison with documented MOULD pedigrees, can also aid in establishing links between MOULD groups who previously were thought to be unrelated. Because many MOULD surname researchers have exhausted traditional genealogy research methods without identifying their elusive MOULD ancestor, this project combines genetics and genealogy in an effort to break through the proverbial 'brick wall'. Much useful information on the application of DNA analysis to genealogy research can be found through the DNA Resources page.
DNA Surname Project for the MOWBRAY family surname and variants of such as MOUBRAY and MOWBERRY. All other variants of the MOWBRAY surname will be added to this project except variants that fall within the following format of MAYB*R*Y. This project is to try to establish the origins and familial links between the numerous MOWBRAY clans of the United States, United Kingdom and Worldwide.
Our Project Goal:To establish a growing database of MULKEY DNA supported lineages to aid in genealogical research for family generations to come. It is our hope that many Mulkey families will participate in this project allowing us to develop a scientifically proven DNA database of Mulkey lineages and specific family groups. Please, contact as many MULKEY researchers and male MULKEY family members as you can to encourage their participation in our Project to help to ensure its success.
