The Willing Surname Project
Welcome to the Willing DNA Project. The project was set up in September 2008, and we have already made some interesting discoveries. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided by the paper records, which may help with your research of your family tree. The results of the tests may help you identify which family tree you belong to. We are discovering which family trees are related. The surnames Willing and Willings are being researched as part of the Willing one-name study, which is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies. You can learn more about this research by visiting the one-name study web page, or by contacting the Group Administrator. Willing was originally Willin, so if you have this surname, you are also welcome to participate. http://one-name.org/profiles/willing.html firstname.lastname@example.org The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and so on back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a WILLING or WILLINGS in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to ask a direct line male in your family tree, such as your father, brother, uncle or cousin, to participate and represent your tree. We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more. The Y DNA test results contain no personal information, and the test is quite different from those used by forensic scientists in criminal investigations and by doctors to identify paternity. Furthermore, the test itself cannot identify a unique individual as close male members of the same family (brothers, uncles, cousins) will in all probability have identical results.
