About us

The Culbert DNA Project welcomes all participants.  We encourage you to join today!

Our project is slow to get started, but we hope to have many exciting discoveries once more Culberts participate.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research.  We will also discover which family trees are related.  As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname.

The people in this DNA Project are also part of the Culbert Family Genealogy Project, a surname study supported by the Guild of One-Name Studies.  The significant research and information about the Culbert surname and the associated family trees are being compiled into a public database, accessed here:

However, because the origins of this surname appear to come from Ireland and Scotland, I had earlier created a html-based website with Culbert links to those two places, which can still be visited here:

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time.  You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown.  If you believe there is a Culbert or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate.  If you are female with one of these surnames, please find a male in your family tree to participate.

We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible.  If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more overall.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time.  You would order a mtDNA test for this.  For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
