About us

East Anglia DNA Project

welcome those whose paternal (Y DNA) or maternal (mt DNA) ancestry trace directly back to or near East Anglia,
and those with aDNA test results who have substantial ancestry in the region.

The area covered by the project includes the counties of: Suffolk (SFK), Norfolk (NFK), the northern half of Essex (ESS) [level with Chelmsford] and the shires of: Lincoln (LIN) [from Boston south] & Cambridge (CAM) [east of Huntingdon].
This would likely represent the Kingdom of the East Angles at its fullest extent, 
with the addition of some of the area covered by the main local British tribes who were in the region prior to the Romans.

Most of the data collected in this project comes from those who have agreed for their DNA results to be publicly displayed for collective analysis. 
In gathering these results along with their ancestry, it is hoped that any underlying connections may be revealed between families long before parish records & documented family trees, and about movement & settlement patterns of the various groups to have come into the region.

Project members need to include the display of their Earliest Known Ancestor and year & place of baptism.

The project was created by David Weston along with a few others and was managed by him between 2006 – 11,
from 2013 by Dr John Pelan & Stephen Arbon.and since 2014 by Stephen Arbon.
