The Lauder Surname Project
The Lauder surname project was established in October 2012, to create a database of Y-DNA profiles to aid in genealogical research. DNA analysis can assist in supporting or refuting the premise that two or more participants descend from a common ancestor. The aims of the project are: - to establish the origins of the Lauder surname. - to determine possible relationships between known Lauder lineages in Scotland. - to discover how or if these lines are connected to Lauder's in other parts of the world. - to enable Lauder's not sure of their geographical origin determine which family group they belong. - to help individuals connect beyond the paper trail with their Y-DNA genetic cousins. - to discover the deep ancestral origin of each Lauder lineage. A surname project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA and acquire a new surname by way of marriage, so the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test. Females who would like to check their direct paternal line can have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test.
