About us

The RAINS Families of Great Britain DNA Project has several objectives:
1. It is attempting to find genetic links between the various regional RAINS families throughout Great Britain and determine the origin of this surname.
2. Within the Northamptonshire area it is trying to establish a common ancestor of the families who dwelt there for at least 700 years.

Membership is only upon application for any male with the RAINS surname (or a variation) who believes his ancestors originated in Great Britain.
