Devon DNA Project - Goals

* To provide a repository for DNA haplotypes from Devon

* To discover which haplogroups and sub-clades can be found in Devon and to learn more about their distribution

* To enable researchers to connect with their genetic cousins

* To verify existing documentary research

* To provide clues for further documentary research by identifying the possible location of earlier ancestors

* To help break down brick walls caused by illegitimacy or adoption

* To find clues regarding the origins of surnames

* To learn more about our distant origins

* To preserve DNA results for future research to protect against any male or female line becoming extinct
