Secondly, our goal is to link our DNA to fellow family members related to European Royalty. Our first mark will be to William the Conqueror, King of England. William died on 9 September 1087, but his body was mostly destroyed in the 16th Century by a Calvinist mob, and the final remaining piece, a thigh bone, was destroyed during the French Revolution. So we will be relying heavily on paper trails and comparing such, so gedcom files will be required.
Thirdly, we want to work from William, to Charlemagne. Again, relying heavily on paper trails. Gedcoms are a must. You will be required to upload one into our database.
This is our starting point for this project. The lines mentioned branch into several Royal European lines and it is our goal to be able to link these various American Patriots and European Royalty lines together with family members via DNA.
Again, gedcoms are a must. Please be sure and support your lineage with sources whenever possible.
We are in the starting stages, so we are flexible at this point. Please join now and see if your DNA relates to our American Patriots and European Royal lines!
Currently, just a suspicion you might be related is enough to allow you into this Project. However, down the line as the Project grows, we may need to remove all those without proven DNA lines. But this is only a MAYBE.
