About us

The objective of this dual geographic lineage project is to grow additional limbs on our ancestral tree using the results of both Y-DNA and mtDNA testing. Historical records have identified our maternal lineage in Walloon Belgium from the early 1700's, including Jeanne Weris(born about 1735), Louise Natal(1780), Therese Roumieux(1813) and Josephine Wenin(1840). All of these births were in the area of Clavier, Ocquier, Borlon, Septon and Durbuy. These villages are in the provinces of Liege and Luxembourg of Belgium. We invite you to help us to further develop this mitochondrial DNA tree. The direct paternal surname, Magin, was identified in Walloon Belgium back to the early 1700's primarily in the villages of Modave and Clavier. The objective is to extend the ancestral tree with the siblings and the marriages at any generation level. We invite you to help us develop this Y-DNA tree. We recommend the mtDNAPlus test and the Y-DNA37 test for participation in this project.
