About us

The Eddy DNA project was begun in July 2009. DNA testing may be able to prove or disprove some of the traditional genealogies of the Eddy/Edie/Eady/Edy/Addy surname. Not all surnames in the project have had traditional genealogies preserved so DNA may help participants to find related people so they can compare their knowledge and add to the their family tree. If you are related to any Eddy variation spelling and have taken an Autosomal Family Finder test you are encouraged to join this project also.

Understanding DNA Testing: Family Tree DNA provides information to help you understand DNA testing. Most people start by looking at projects which fit their surname. Across the top of every page are the words TESTIMONIALS, PRIVACY and FAQ. There are also excellent explanations of Y-DNA (male DNA) testing and mtDNA (female DNA) testing accessed from the left column. On the lower right column are articles which give you a deeper understanding of DNA. An excellent tutorial on DNA is found on the Blair Surname site called DNA 101.

Recommended books on DNA in general are: Colleen Fitzpatrick & Andrew Yeiser, Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak and Ann Turner, . Books featuring DNA in the British Isles and Ireland are: Stephen Oppenheimer, Bryan Sykes, (published in Great Britain as ).
