About us

The objective of this Creer DNA Study, involving a group of males with the surname Creer known to have originated in the IOM, are to:-
a. Provide participants with more information on their own Creer family grouping, by confirming or denying believed relationships and by identifying their most likely recent common ancestors (MRCA).
b. Enable participants to understand how they connect or not with other Creer family groups
c. Seek to answer the question of whether all existing Creer families are descended from one or more male Creer ancestors or not. The current theory is that there is one common ancestor between 20 and 30 generations ago.
d. Provide new insights into the earlier genetic origins of the Creer family, i.e. when did they arrive on the IOM and from where?

To my knowledge this will be the first such study into a specific Manx surname and hence may provide additional insights into Manx genetic history also.
