Basically, the Roarks came from Ireland. We are attempting to establish the timelines and countries of when and where the different Roark lines arrived and left Ireland. We hope to answer the question of whether there is one main Roark line, or are there many distinct lines. And we will see if there is a genetic link between the different spellings of the Roark surname. For each distinct Roark group, we will set-up a small genealogy report starting with the oldest male Roark ancestor and then one or two generations. This will give all a sense of where the paper research has stopped. In the Roark groups, we will only show genealogy data that is PROVABLE. There will be no hunches or guesswork. We'll let the DNA test results prove out the hunches.
