About us

The Reagan DNA project was started on March 8, 2004.    As of May 12, 2014, it was taken over by Jane Gilbert, descendant of Timothy and Mary Ragan of colonial Maryland.   In 2015, Patrick Regan, descendant of Jeremiah Regan of Bantrey, Ireland and NY joined me as an admin.

The focus of this project is Y-DNA of men carrying the Reagan surname or its variants.   Any male who appears to be a Reagan genetically is also welcome and encouraged to join.

People who have had the Family Finder test and have a Reagan line in their tree are also welcome to join, although at present there are scant tools/features to make it worthwhile.   You can, however, now search for FF matches within a project...

Put your cursor over the My DNA option on the main toolbar, and then over Family Finder.
Left click on Advanced Matching
Check off Family Finder, and then in the drop-down box for "Show Matches For," changing the selection from "The Entire Database" to the project you're interested in.
- Click the orange "Run Report" button.This will work for any project you're in, including surname projects.

People interested in the Group 1 Reagan family are invited to join us on Facebook for discussions and developments related to this line:
