The Barton DNA Project started in 2001 and now has more than 440 men with yDNA tests, plus other researchers with atDNA or mtDNA tests. We ask that you test at least 37 yDNA and encourage you NOT to order 12 or 25 yDNA without discussing it first. All men with a paternal heritage of Barton ancestry are welcome. We also welcome any man who is matching a Barton, those who have a variation of the surname, and men with the Penwell/Penuel or Stedman (any variation) surnames - as we are also seeking to understand those historic relationships.
