ALBIN Surname DNA Project
Posted by: Michael L. Hébert (ID *****8652) Date: August 15, 2011 at 17:31:04

A DNA project has been launched for the Albin surname, along with any variations such as Alban, Alben, etc. The project uses testing on the male Y chromosome which is passed directly down the paternal line from father to son making it ideal for investigating surname lineages. The testing can be used to uncover, prove, or disprove connections between various Albin lines and to also give clues about the deeper origins of the lineages.

Project participation is open to any direct paternal-line male Albin descendant - i.e., a male whose last name is Albin (or any variation of the surname) or a male whose biological paternal-line ancestry goes back to a Albin but whose last name was changed at some point, such as due to adoption. Even if you are not a direct paternal-line male Albin descendant, you can join the project by sponsoring the testing of a Albin male from your immediate or extended family, such as a brother, son, father, uncle, male cousin, distant male cousin, etc.

Feel free to visit the Albin-Alban project website for more details:

Also, if you are an Albin that has already had Y-DNA testing done at Family Tree DNA, you can log into your account and use the Join Projects link to join the Albin-Alban project.
