Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
There is a DNA project underway for the above listed surnames at http://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Chamblee. Our goal is to find a common link between these families and prove relationships between the earliest known ancestors with these surnames. If you are a man with one of these last names, you are eligible to take a yDNA test. We recommend taking at least a 37 marker test, although 67 would be more informative. Women are encouraged to solicit their fathers, brothers, uncles, or cousins to take the test! Donations may also be made to the project through FTDNA http://www.familytreedna.com and would be greatly appreciated.
For more information on this project, please contact me via the email address listed with my name or reply to this message. Thank you!
