About us

The Rankin Family Project seeks to help find our common heritage through DNA testing. All variant spellings - e.g., Rankin, Renkin, Rankins -- are welcome. Although our current focus is on Y-DNA testing, we invite anyone with a Rankin in an ancestral line to join. Historically, World Families has administered the Rankin project. As of May 2018, World Families is "retiring." Consequently, this project will be located entirely at this FTDNA site. As you might expect, we are undergoing some changes (at perhaps a glacial pace). Please contact an administrator if you have any comments or suggestions! In keeping with FTDNA policy, ensuring members' privacy will be a primary objective. Accordingly, some of the information previously shared with members' permission at the World Families link will no longer be available.
