I am a MAYNOR researcher and I am interested in finding out what spellings of MAINARD/MAYNARD/MAYNOR/MAYNOR/MANOR/MANER/MANNER/MEIGNER/etc are genetically related. I feel it might help some of us break through a brick wall.

So far, all I have is one mtDNA sample, which is actually listed under another surname-- the Participant's Y-DNA surname.

Y-DNA requires a male donor and an ALL MALE line of descent from the earliest ancestor to the donor.

mtDNA is less amenable to the "shotgun" approach,but it can be used for carefully designed studies. Requires either a male or female donor but an ALL FEMALE line of descent to the donor.

Although I started the project some time ago, nobody else has signed up yet, and I am recruiting members to get it going.

I run another DNA project (WEBB) which has helped several people make connections already. I am also co-Administrator of the HUDSON DNA Project.

If anyone is interested,please email me for the details.

My MAYNOR line -- for which I will have a sample sooner or later -- begins in York Co,VA in the later 1600s and moves to NC then into GA/SC/AL/TX
