Identifying family relationships through DNA.

About us

This group aims to find and classify the genetic connections between SANSBURY, SAINSBURY and similarly named surname lines to establish how our families are related to each other, and how members within each surname group are related to common SANSBURY or SAINSBURY ancestors.

Y-DNA testing is a particular focus of this project because it traces descent and relationships in the patrilineal line. It therefore confirms and uncovers relationships among families based largely on their surname.

NEW! Funds are available to support free Y-DNA testing on certain Sainsbury lines. Please contact an administrator for more information.

We encourage sharing among group project members to help members break through their brick walls. Our project administrators are available to offer advice about Sainsbury and Sansbury family history using DNA testing and analysis.

Y-DNA and autosomal DNA testers welcome (e.g., Ancestry DNA; see FAQs for instructions.)

Please contact one of our project administrators for more information.
