About us

The Culbert DNA Project welcomes male participants with a connection to the surname Culbert. We encourage you to join today!

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

The Culbert surname in this DNA Project is also researched as part of the Culbert One-Name Study. You can learn more about this significant worldwide research, and the the associated family trees, by visiting the One-Name study web site (, or contacting the Group Administrator, here:

The YDNA test tells males about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time.  You must be male Culbert to take the YDNA test as part of this project.  However, 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, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your Culbert branch.

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

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. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
