The Daglish and Dalgleish DNA Project - Goals

The objectives of the DNA study are:

- to confirm links between Dalgleish and its variants;

- to determine which of the many Daglish families can can be linked back to a common ancestor.
For example many Daglish families in County Durham can be traced back to Whickham parish - but even from the extensive parish registers we do not know if they all shared a common ancestor. Other Daglish families can be traced back to Northumberland. Are these separate from the County Durham Daglishes - or are these linked by a common ancestor?
This will help the usual question 'are we related' and will also give a greater insight into the history of the Daglish name.
