Mugford Surname DNA Project - Goals

1. To test the single-founder hypothesis in both England and Newfoundland, and wherever else it might be appropriate, by discovering how many genetically distinct Mugford family lines there are;

2. To assist traditional genealogy by using genetic matching to connect Mugford family lines in England with those in Newfoundland and elsewhere;

3. To discover the ancient ethnic and geographic origin of each project participant's paternal line as far as can be discovered by genetic testing.
