The Dorling Surname Project


74% of all known male 19th century Dorlings originate, or have ancestors who originate, in Suffolk and Norfolk, UK. The Dorling DNA Project started with DNA Heritage and is now being transferred to FTDNA. AIMS OF THE DORLING DNA PROJECT · To discover the genetic sequence that identifies the main branches of the Dorling surname · To help confirm the findings of genealogical research into the Dorling family trees. · To discover if the main branches are related to each other via a common ancestor. · To help find how individuals and other smaller branches of Dorlings fit into the overall Dorling history, either as distinct branches or as part of other Dorling branches. · To provide the potential means of identifying the male ancestry of a branch originating from a female Dorling. (East Anglia Geographical Project may help) · To investigate the deeper ancestral roots of the Dorling families.
