About us

This is a study into the DNA of surnames O'Neill, O'Neil, O'Neal, O'Neall and related surnames. It is intended to provide a tool to assist in determining if two or more males with the "O'Neill" surnames are related and, if so, approximately how far back they must go to find a common ancestor. This is a promising new field for genealogical research and will be combined with known Irish O'Neill history to help determine relationships with branches and septs of the O'Neill Clan.
