About us

This Group is dedicated to identifying our common heritage and rapid migratory pattern during the Roman period between the Iberian Peninsula, Germania Superior/Italy and the Peak District, England. Our group actively pursues both traditional and genetic genealogy. Many of our members are vigorously pursuing their roots in each of our geographic centers with the hope to discover our connections. If you have tested with a company other than FTDNA.com, please contact one of our administrators so that we can work with you to add your haplotype to our project’s website. Many within our group are active contributors to the www.haplozone.net community and seek to utilize phylogeny in our endeavors, but we know that the non-genetic historical research is an equal if not more important part of any conclusions we make in regards to genealogy. Ultimately, the DNA provides us a direction, but traditional genealogy is the proof we seek for our connectedness. The members of our project are joined by a common SNP mutation called PF2431. However, you do not need to know if you have this mutation to join. Simply, contact one of the group administrators and we can identify if you are a good fit. Though we have a list of surnames which we currently know have the PF2431 marker, this list is limited. So please do not let the surname list discourage you from inquiring. We also encourage you to join the E3b project at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/E3b/
