About us

This project was formed on Sept. 7th, 2006 to help all Dobkins (and variant spellings) worldwide connect to their ancestors.

Several lines have been identified and we are actively seeking European Dobkins to test.

Initially the project was focused on Y-line DNA only, but more recently with the advent of the Family Finder test, we welcome all Dobkins descendants and will group them according to ancestral line.

Very few, if any, group e-mails will be sent through the project. To keep current with genetic genealogy information, please subscribe to the blog, by clicking on the small grey "follow" button on the right side of the page. Not everyone appreciates e-mails from project administrators, and taking a blog approach allows people who are interested to subscribe without bothering those who aren't. So, please, subscribe to keep current.

Family information for the Dobyns family can be found at:
