The Pike Surname Project
Pike, Pyke, McPike, etc, surname DNA project. The Pike DNA Project was founded in July 2004 and now has over 150 partipants, from Australia, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, the USA, and Wales. We warmly welcome Pikes, Pykes, etc., from everywhere to join our project. Globally, we have so far found genetic evidence of 50 unrelated Pike families. Of these, 23 have known origins within the British Isles... their distribution is mapped on the "Test Results" page on our project website (a link to our website is shown elsewhere on this page). Of the 50 unrelated Pike families that we have now encountered, one of them accounts for just over 25% of all Pikes to join our project. All of the Pike males in this one family share a nearly identical Y-chromosome, because everybody in this family decends from a single Pike male who lived sometime in the 1500s or earlier. We know that this progenitor lived before the 1600s because we know of two separate lineages within this family that can each be traced back to the 1500s but without yet connecting to each other. Note that we have a Sponsorship Fund that can sometimes assist with the cost of DNA tests for newcomers to our project (more details can be found on our project's "How to Join" webpage). We also have an email mailing list to which bulletins and news updates are sent about once every month. To subscribe to this list, follow the instructions on our project's "Mailing List" webpage. To join our project, you can order a DNA collection kit by selecting a test to order from the choices shown further down on this webpage, or contact either of the project's two volunteer coordinators David Pike (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Stuart Pike (email@example.com) and we'll be happy to offer our assistance.
