About us

This worldwide project is now bearing fruit showing connections back to Scotland in AD 1200 and Ireland in 1700. More participants mean clearer results. DNA PROVES connections that you may suspect on paper, and may find connections that don't exist on any paper records. If you are male, or have a male Edgar relative, and are interested in researching your direct paternal line further, you can participate. This project study is using the DNA test that looks at a portion of the DNA called the Y chromosome. The Y chromosome is unique to males and can be used to identify one`s direct paternal line. For this reason, females cannot contribute directly, but can find a male relative (father, brother, cousin, etc.) to be tested as a representative of their line. This is a good source of surname information: http://forebears.io/surnames/edgar##resources
