About us

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

Our project has now been running for four years, and we have already made some exciting discoveries.

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 on the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are also researched as part of the ROWBERRY One-Name Study (RONS). The story of the significant research data gathered over several decades and information about the surnames and the associated family trees can be found at: http://www.rowberry.org

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 above. If you believe there is a Rowberry 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 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. For this you need to order a mtDNA test.
