About us

The Pettypool DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!

New results have just been posted, and we expect to have many more exciting discoveries in the near future. Check it all out at the public web site using the link above.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are also researched as part of the Pettypool one-name study. The significant research and information about the surnames and the associated family trees can be found at:

The variant Pool and Poole is found in some Pettypool branches, and came about in the 1800s. If you have any suspicion that your ancestor may have been a Pettypool, we encourage you to join our project. Others with the Pool or Poole surname should join the Poole project.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Pettypool or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, please find a male in your family tree to participate.

We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
