The Albin-Alban Surname Project
The Albin-Alban DNA Project uses the new tools of genetic genealogy and Y-DNA testing to enhance and augment traditional genealogical research into Albin and Alban family lineages from the U.K., the U.S., Europe, Canada, Australia, and anywhere else in the world Albin and Alban families are found. All variations of the Albin and Alban surnames are included in the project such as Alben, Albon, Albone, Albini, Albani, Albano, Arbon, Arban, etc. The project seeks to help break through brick walls in research and prove, or disprove, family connections where documented sources are either lacking or inconclusive.Project participation is open to any direct paternal-line male Albin or Alban descendant?i.e., a male whose last name is Albin or Alban (or any variation) or a male whose biological paternal-line ancestry goes back to an Albin or Alban but whose last name was changed at some point, such as due to adoption. However, even if you are not a direct paternal-line male Albin or Alban descendant, you can join the project by sponsoring the testing of an Albin or Alban male from your immediate or extended family, such as a brother, son, father, uncle, male cousin, distant male cousin, etc. The success of the project depends on getting as many Albin and Alban males tested as possible, so please help this effort by getting tested yourself or arranging for the testing of an Albin or Alban (or any variation) male in your family. Also, the deeper origins of the Albin and Alban paternal lines can be explored through Y-SNP testing.It is highly recommended that, at minimum, the Y-DNA37 test be ordered which will provide an adequate number of markers for genealogical purposes and for finding matches in the Family Tree DNA database. For even better testing resolution and better matching, the Y-DNA67 or Y-DNA111 tests can be ordered.
