Welcome to the Britton DNA Project. If you want to trace your Britton ancestors, the Britton Project is a good place to begin. Since inception in 2004, the Project has identified 14 different Britton families (ie separate genetic lines) which do not share a common Britton ancestor and are not related within genealogical or historical time. Each of these lines has its own Y-DNA signature which is as unique as a fingerprint and can be used to distinguish it from every other Britton family. Please see our Y-DNA results for more information or write to Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey Britton at LPlantagenet AT AOL.com.
