Who Do YouThink You Are? Conference is scheduled for February 25-27, 2011 in London. It is the largest genealogical conference in the world. Your administrator will attend and will be handing out free DNA kits to any male with the Doolin (and variant spellings) surname who will test at the Family Tree DNA or the ISOGG booth. Stop by to say hello!
The American version of Who Do You Think You Are? will air its second season starting January 21st on NBC. Check your TV schedule for local times
We have many lines we could test as it is wise to test at least two descendants from each line to get a true picture of our ancestor's DNA. Descendants of any Doolin (and variant spellings, regardless of country of origin) are needed for testing.
Here are only a few lines that have not been tested to date.
1. Various Doolin lines in Kentucky
2. Dulin and Duling lines in Virginia
3. Descendants of the various Sugar and Rice Dulin lines
4. Outlaw Bill Doolin of Oklahoma (NOTE: One person has been tested, but we need another. This test is free to a qualified male.)
