About us

NOTICE (2019/05/22): Starting this summer there will be a sponsorship available for 12-marker Y-DNA STR tests. It is coming from private funds and will be available on a monthly basis. To qualify, individuals must be males with the Flanagan surname (or immediate known paternity) and be from Connaught, Ulster, or the Midlands of Ireland. Flanagans from Mayo will be given preference. Preference will also be given to individuals who have a verified tree 3+ generations back. Also eligible for consideration will be individuals in the U.S. descended from Thomas Flanagan of Salem, New Jersey, particularly those descended through his son James, with a verified tree back to them.

Welcome to the Flanagan Surname DNA project. Any Flanagan lines may participate and are encouraged to do so. The goals of this project are:

1. Obtain biological evidence of relationships or the absence of such between various early Flanagan lines in various locations, including Ireland, the US, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, and other countries;
2. Identify haplotypes associated with various Flanagan lines internationally; and
3. Identify haplotypes associated with the Flanagan surname in Ireland.

PLEASE NOTE: HAPLOTYPES ARE ANONYMOUSLY GROUPED AND DISPLAYED ON THE PROJECT'S PUBLIC WEBSITES AND OTHER RESOURCES. PARTICIPATION REQUIRES ACCEPTANCE OF THIS.
