About us

Project will attempt to discover relationships among Barrett families and families which have similar names. It also will attempt to identify the national and ethnic origins of families or individuals.

This project uses Y-Chromosome testing. Therefore the DNA sample must be provided by a male BARRETT with an unbroken male BARRETT line.

Members of the McAndrew family from Co. Mayo, Ireland are encouraged to join as they are matching with our family groups.

Men with Y-DNA and any of the surnames below are welcome. Men with Y-DNA and several matches with the surnames below are welcome to join.

Anyone with mtDNA and a maternal ancestor with any of the names listed is welcome.

Anyone with Family Finder and an ancestor with any of the surnames listed is welcome to join.
