Dowell DNA Surname Project- Background



Dewell, Dowell


The Dowell DNA Surname Project was created to help connect Dowells and Dewells around the world using DNA. We are searching for males with surname Dowell or Dewell to participate in our research and help us make those connections.

For those who are interested in the more distant connections between the Dowells and other surnames derived from the MacDubhghaill Clan, there are other DNA Projects at FTDNA which may include a wider range of MacDubhghaill DNA data. For more information, search for the variants of the MacDubhghaill surname on the FTDNA website.

FTDNA allows you to belong to two surname projects simultaneously.

As of January 2009, we have found no DNA evidence for any connections between the Dowells we have tested and any McDowells that have been tested.
