About us

Statements have been made by an individual who is not a member of this DNA project concerning the validity of the Bach to Back DNA Project results.  This is to inform those who are concerned that what that person is alleging is not possible.  Neither the project group administrator nor the individuals who are tested can change the numbers that represent the results.  The FTDNA system enters those numbers and they cannot be edited.  A quick call to Family Tree DNA can confirm this.  What you see on this site on the results page are the scientific results provided by Family Tree DNA and no one else.

Bach to Back DNA Project

* * * * * * * * * * 

This Project was started as a result of multiple theories as to the lineage of people named BACH and BACK who moved into Eastern Kentucky very early.  All seem to be in agreement that they moved from Virginia and that their roots are in Germany but there are several credible theories as to the roots of the family(ies).
