EARP DNA established

There seems to be some degree of interest in DNA testing on among Earp descendants. This science has come a long way in just the last couple of years and, in my opinion, is the greatest tool for genealogists to come along in decades. It is just that - a tool - and does not replace good, solid research with primary documents. However, it can rule in - and rule out - relationships and give some much needed direction for further research when one has reached a brickwall.

I have thought about establishing a DNA project for the Earp line for some time as I also manage other DNA projects. Now that the technology has progressed, the time seems right. The EARP DNA Project has been established, and it will no doubt help many people in the future. Briefly, the tests are done on the Y-chromosome which is passed from father to son, and he to his son, etc., thus participants must be male and must have the Earp surname all the way down the male line. If you are a female and wish to have your Earp line tested, a male cousin, uncle, brother, etc., can provide the DNA for your line.

The website for the project is:
