The Peel Surname Project
The Peel Surname DNA project is for all spellings of Peel. We use the Y dna tests for paternal lineage & recommend the 37 marker test because it provides enough information to accurately determine kinship with other participants. The mt DNA tests for maternal lines do not provide as high a probability of kinship as does the Y dna tests and accordingly we will chart only the Y dna results. We hope to have participants from many countries from around the world who have documented their lineage. We appreciate help in getting the word out to potential participants. The Peel surname and it's variations have origins in several countries including England, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. If your "Peel" ancestors are from some other place you can still join this project. Background Several "cousins" with similar surnames have gotten together to promote the use of DNA testing to establish ancestral lines and to establish or confirm connections with potential cousins. FTDNA offers several types of testing that can fulfill these objectives.
