About us

The Munro DNA project was initiated in 2001 by North Carolina Munro researchers with the goal that Family Tree DNA would become a repository of Munro DNA worldwide. Participants include bona fide representatives of • certain Foulis-Munro chiefs and cadet branches. • President James Monroe. • banished prisoners of war from the Battle of Worcester: William Monroe of Lexington, MA, (American Revolutionary War fame) and John Munro of Bristol, RI. • Marilyn Monroe Munro DNA Project Privacy Statement As Co-administrators of the Munro Project we give priority to protecting your privacy and to the confidentiality of your personal data.
