Johnson/Johnston/Johnstone DNA Test Results- Background



Johnson, Johnston, Johnstone


In the late 1980’s a core group of genealogical researchers through exchanges of information began to see the need for a central spokesperson to assimilate and distribute the analytical reports that was to become the mainstay of the group. Thus emerged Linda Sparks Starr, who’s web page can be found at Colonial Virginia Connections where many other Colonial surname analytical reports can be reviewed today. Frustrating Linda’s group was the fact that researching in Colonial Virginia was severally hampered because of several “burned” counties, New Kent County in particular. By the year 2000 DNA research in relation to genealogy had became a hot topic of national discussion and Linda’s group was quick to grasp the importance of this new research. At first, there were only a few individual volunteers from within the group to agree to being tested but these early DNA results soon showed that more participants would be needed for comparison. Fortunately, the lab early on initiated a program, called "Surname Projects", which enabled a group such as ours to encourage participants to take part in this DNA project for the benefit of everyone. Hence, the beginning of this project. As a result of it's early beginning, the J/J/J Surname DNA Project is historically listed as a Pioneer DNA Surname Project
