DNA

This is designed to suggest a few starting points to those who are interested in pursuing this particular avenue of investigation.


INFORMATION RESOURCES


TESTING SERVICES

  • Family Tree DNA
    – the specialists with the largest database; my choice for my projects
  • Ancestry.com — bought out another company and then farms out their laboratory testing; not the best way to go
  • Oxford Ancestors — if you want to choose a British firm for some reason, or compare your results with those from their database

SURNAME PROJECT WEBSITES FOR FAMILIES
WHICH HAD BRANCHES LIVING IN GUILFORD COUNTY

If you know about a project involving Guilford families, please e-mail me and I will add it to the list. Family Tree DNA has projects such as Scottish DNA, Ulster Scots, British Quakers, etc., so look for those on their website.
