About us

This Y DNA project hopes to identify the Roanoke Lost Colonists and is open to males who meet the following criteria: •Your surnames is the same as one of the Lost Colonists AND your family is proven to descend from Eastern North Carolina, preferably before 1700. •You have an oral history of Lost Colony ancestry on your direct paternal line. If you have Colonist surnames on any other line, meaning not your direct paternal (Y DNA) line, you can join the Lost Colony Family Project.
