About us

The Rowberry DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!. The project has now been running for four years and we already have had several interesting and exciting discoveries. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help discover the history of your family. 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. The significant research that has occurred for several decades and information about the surnames and the associated family trees can be found at:

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. 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. You would order a mtDNA test. And for both males and females there is now the more advanced Family Finder test. For the chart of DNA Results, please click on the "Results" tab above.
