About us

This is a new group and it is important to get as many DNA tests done as possible to make a success out of the DNA research on these families. We invite you to join our group so we can make sure our research is given every chance to be accurate and complete. Remember the rule, the Y-DNA test is simple to do and the tester MUST BE a Whitten by blood and not by adoption or a step-child and MUST carry the Whitten surname.
