I have recently agreed to co-administer the The Tobin and Tobey DNA Project http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/tobin.

The objectives of the project are:

1. Determine if DNA testing can be used to connect Tobins to the first member of the Irish Tobin family on record a Norman, William de St. Albino, (latinized form of St. Aubyn) who witnessed Geoffrey FitzRobertís charter c.1204-6 to the priory of Kells in Ossory.

2. Determine the relationship if any among the few Tobin families that immigrated to the American colonies before the Revolutionary War and their relationship to the later and greater number of Tobins who emigrated from Ireland in the 19th century.

3. Determine the relationship of Nathaniel Tobey/Tobin born 1740-50 and died 1831/2 to Isaac Tobey/Tobin born 1750 in Hunterdon Co., New Jersey, and who died in 1836 in Guernsey Co., Ohio.

a. Determine the relationship of this family either to the Tobey, Tobin, or other family

b. Determine the relationship to this family, if any, of Albert Tobin c1816-1864, a confederate soldier who died of disease in a hospital in Warrenton, Virginia, during the Civil War

4. Determine the genetic relationship among the Tobey families and their relationship to Nathaniel and Isaac Tobey/Tobin
