About us

Welcome to the Fanning DNA Project! Our goal is to use both Y-DNA (from father to son) and at-DNA (50% from mom, 50% from dad), coupled with traditional genealogical information, to learn more about our Fanning ancestors and discover new Fanning relatives.

The only requirements to join are that you have a Fanning variant surname (or have evidence that you are a Fanning descendant) and have a Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) kit number (with an associated DNA test). Both Y-DNA and at-DNA tests (e.g. Family Finder, AncestryDNA) are welcome (if you only have an mt-DNA test, this surname project will likely not be of much value to you). Please see the FTDNA resources section for information on their three basic tests. Transfers from other DNA testing companies are also welcome. As DNA projects are a collaborative effort, we also ask each member to submit their Fanning pedigree (information regarding living persons will be kept private). Please let the administrator team know if you have a Fanning variant surname that is missing from the Surnames section.

You can find our current Y-DNA data in the DNA Results section off our main page. Analysis of these results can be found in the Results tab of the About section, along with pedigrees to help tie genetic data to genealogical information.

If you have suggestions on how to improve this site, please let the admin team know. We are volunteers with day jobs, so we may need your patience, but we are passionate about making this site very useful and the Fanning DNA Project successful!
