About us

If you have any questions about the project or DNA testing, please contact the project co-administrators, Lynda Moseley at lcmoseley@hotmail.com 

In addition to our y-dna members, we maintain a contact group consisting of female Moseley descendants and males descended from a female Moseley, who are not eligible for y-dna testing, many of whom have detailed paper pedigrees to share.  Several of these contacts have tested their autosomal dna, as well, as have some of our y-dna members.  We are very excited to have this tool to further help our members make family connections.  

These are the lines for which DNA participants are needed:

1) John Moseley b. 1776 SC m. Priscilla LNU and their son, Leonard S. Moseley and his wife, Elizabeth Whitten;
