We welcome any male worldwide with the surname ELDER or ELDERS to participate in our
Y-Chromosome DNA project, ordering the "mouth swab" kit
on the JOIN REQUEST menu for ELDER discount with FamilyTreeDNA.
If you are a female researcher with a close male relative still 
carrying the surname ELDER  we encourage you to request their participation.
 The goal of the ELDER Surname Project is to distinguish between
ELDER ancestral lines, worldwide, and connect lines that have reached brick walls
on their paper trail, especially to connect to their Scotland origins.

****
Over the past 20+ years ELDER researchers
have collected and organized a vast amount
of genealogical records for families with surname ELDER.
Many of these records can still be found at the FamilyTrail.com web site:
