Dowell DNA Surname Project
The primary goals of the Dowell DNA Surname Project are to:
- Organize Dowells and Dewells into genetic groups based on their YDNA data.
- Help Dowell researchers identify which DNA Group they belong to. By identifying their DNA Group, researchers can be sure they are researching lines that share a common ancestor with their own lines, so that their valuable time is spent pursing promising trails, rather than trails that will lead to "dead ends."
- Find genetic connections between Dowells and Dewells in America and Europe.
