Here's another tool in your genealogical research. Please participate in the FORBES Worldwide DNA Project. I've initiated the project at the website www.familytreedna.com.

FORBES Worldwide DNA Project Aims

1) Establish and/or estimate the number of different ancestral lines found among FORBES families worldwide.

2) Trace currently known and unknown FORBES lineages to common ancestors in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and English colonies, past and present.

3) Assist genealogy researchers in identifying and validating their immigrant FORBES ancestor and/or remotest FORBES ancestor through the 25 Marker test.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Surnames in Project:

FAUBUS, FOBES, FORBES, FORBESS, FORBIS, FORBISH, FORBUS, FORDICE, FORDYCE, FURBUSH



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I should add that by using the "Join Authorization" link, the applicant receives the special group pricing. Please inform your FORBES friends.

Requirements:

Since a Surname Project in essence traces members of a family that share a common surname, and females (a) don't carry their father's Y-DNA, and (b) acquire a new surname by the way of marriage, in order to be relevant to the Surname Project, the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's father's...). The test to be ordered is either the Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25 or Y-DNA37, and females should look for a brother or cousin with that surname to be tested. Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of this test cannot be tied to the Surname Project.
