The NOLAN DNA Project welcomes all participants. Our hope is to break through barriers every genealogical researcher encounters. NOLAN males should take a Y-DNA test. Men with maternal Nolan lines as well as women without a male relative to test, are encouraged to join. Your autosomal DNA results may be the key to breaking a brick wall in your genealogy or someone else’s in the group. Maybe both! The plan is to: * chart the Y Chromosome of each DNA sample submitted * establish a data base to be used in furthering research * match individuals and families who share a common Nolan male ancestor Thank you for your interest and we hope you will contact us if you have any questions. Please read our Background Page for instructions and information.
