The Finnell Surname Project
The FINNEL DNA Surname DNA Project in conjunction with the extensive genealogical research efforts of Arthur Lewis Finnell, Robert B. Noles, et al will help determine (and prove) which of the FINNELL families in the U.S. & England are descendants of a common FINNELL ancestor.Surname genetic testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. The genetic genealogy tests verify a man?s direct paternal ancestry in a quick and easy way. These tests save time, prevent mistakes and provide invaluable data for genealogists that can not be otherwise obtained. The FINNELL Surname DNA Project is open to all persons with the FINNELL surname (all spellings) world-wide. This project is also open to anyone who believes they are (or could be) a direct male descendant of one of the FINNELL families, even if their surname is not FINNELL. This project is primarily a Y-Chromosome study (direct paternal line); however, those (men or women) interested in the mitochondrial DNA testing (direct maternal line) may join this project as well.Many surnames were changed during the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries due to adoptions, out-of-wedlock births, family disagreements, etc. Under these circumstances, the Y-DNA for many descendants may not match other descendants with the same surname. Therefore, this project will assist FINNELL researchers on common or related families to work together to find their correct common ancestors, when that hasn?t been possible via the examination of the traditional paperwork trailYou are hereby cordially invited to participate in this historic project. FINNELL family members requesting participation are requested to supply Robert B. Noles with their known FINNELL genealogy.Robert B. Noles, FINNELL Surname Group Admin. (email@example.com)
