The Wren Surname/DNA Project is open to all who are interested in working together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and DNA testing. There are no geographic limitations on participation. The project is open to anyone with Wrenn/Wrenn surnames in their family tree who would like to share autosomal DNA via Family Finder. At this time there does NOT appear to be ANY relationship with Renshaw, Rinshaw, and Rencher Families or their derivations. Please see those projects for help with these families. This may change as more results become available. Requirements A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. They are of the most interest in cultures where surnames are passed on from father to son like the Y-Chromosome. This project is primarily for males taking a Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) test. Thus, the individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...). We recommend a Y-DNA67 or Y-DNA111 test. Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA. Females who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test. Females can also order an mtDNA test for themselves such as the mtDNAPlus test or the mtFullSequence test and participate in an mtDNA project. Both men and women may take our autosomal Family Finder test to discover recent relationships across all family lines.
