The Brashear Surname Project
This project is trying to determine the genetic links between people with the surnames of Brashear, Breshear, Brassieur, Brasseur, Brasure, Brazure, Brazier and variant spellings. It is open to both males and females. We welcome more participants. The project will primarily be done by testing males on their Y chromosome, but we will also test people with the surname in their direct female ancestry or anywhere in their autosomal ancestry. A 37 marker Y DNA test is recommended for males. More markers can then be tested if needed to further define family groups. The full mtDNA test is best for mtDNA on males and females direct female line, but the less costly HVR1 and HVR2 test will also work. The Family Finder autosomal test will help you find relatives from you most recent 5th or 6th generation of ancestors. I am always available to answer questions you may have about the testing.
