The Emblin DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today ! The Group Administrator, Ian Emblin, has been researching the name for over 25 years and has a wealth of information about the history of the name which was origonally most prevalent in the Home Counties of England. There are family trees for family groups in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Australia. Our project is just getting started and we expect to have many exciting discoveries. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname. The surnames in this DNA project are also researched as part of the EMBLIN one-name study. The significant research and information about the surnames and the associated family trees can be found through <<www.one-name.org.uk>> The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your fsther his father, back in time. You must be male to take the test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is an Emblin, or variant, in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, please find a male in your family tree to participate. We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can always up-grade later, though this costs a little more. Both males and females may be interested in learning about thier direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother and back in time. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame order the mtDNA Plus test.
