The East Anglia Geographic DNA Project is for anyone whose paternal (YDNA) OR maternal (mtDNA) ancestry traces to the southeast region of England, collectively known as East Anglia. For the purposes of this project East Anglia is defined by its historical boundaries (Ref. Wikipedia East Anglia), which include the counties of Suffolk (SFK), Norfolk (NFK) and Cambridgeshire (CAM); plus northern Essex (ESS) and southeast Lincolnshire (LIN).
