The Am*d*n Surname Project
The first goal is to get as many male descendants of Roger Amadowne to contribute and hence validate the family genealogy to date. The second goal is to expand our search for the origin of Roger. The two most likely countries of origin are France and England. --Update (November 2006), all three cousins' results are in. Two cousins are perfect 12-marker matches and the third has 11/12 matches with the one mutation being a commonly mutated marker. Deep haplogroup determination is pending. --Update (June 2009), two of the three cousins have tested to 67 markers with two mutations. Deep haplogroup determination is I1*, and we've ruled out I1a, I1b, I1c, I1d, and I1e. We're also waiting on results from a person with the family name of Amadio, who has traced his family to Italy in the 1600s. Another person with the surname of Annadown is considering testing.
