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. In keeping with FTDNA policy, ensuring members' privacy is a primary objective. Accordingly, some of the information previously shared with members' permission at its former website hosted by World Families is no longer available.
