The Brookshire/Brookshie Surname Project
The Brookshire/Brookshier DNA Project was started to see if all Brookshire/Brookshier families are related. We are looking for those with the surnames listed to test in our project to determine if these surnames are also related. Of particular importance, we are trying to prove that our Brookshire/Brookshier families descend from a James Brookshaw who probably came from Chesire, England and settled in Somerset County, Maryland about 1674. We would like to test those with the surname Brookshaw and Bruckshaw who reside in England or descend from an ancestor from England. We are seeking to establish relationships, determine ancestries, and ethnic origins for these families worldwide. If you would like to join our study and receive a discount on your DNA Test kit, please send a request to join authorization and we will include you in our project. We require a 25-marker test.
