About us

This project was begun to determine the various Speak(e)() lines around the world. According to family legend, the original ancestor came to England with William the Conqueror and his last name then was L'Espec. It was later spelled Speke and then the derivatives of Speake, Speakes, and Speaks carried by descendants today.

Several lines have been identified and we are actively seeking European Speaks to test.

Initially the project was focused on Y-line DNA only, but more recently with the advent of the Family Finder test, we welcome all Speak descendants and will group them according to ancestral line.

Very few, if any, group e-mails will be sent through the project. To keep current with genetic genealogy information, please subscribe to the blog, www.dna-explained.com by clicking on the small grey "follow" button on the right side of the page. Not everyone appreciates e-mails from project administrators, and taking a blog approach allows people who are interested to subscribe without bothering those who aren't. So, please, subscribe to keep current.
