- Goals

                                                         Goal of Landry Surname yDNA Project

The major goal of this website is to provide help in identifying ancestors of male Landrys.  Accomplishment of this goal will require many standard DNA profiles derived from those who know their pedigree back to the earliest ancestors that are currently known. 

Below is a list of the first three generations of males in the North American Landry lines that I am aware of.  Rene le jeune Landry and Rene l’aine Landry are from the same line but their DNA profiles differ slightly so they have been listed separately.  Off to the right is the number of descendants with a known pedigree who have provided a DNA sample.  As you can see, four such targeted samples have identified two major lines (the two Rene Landrys line and Guilluame Landry line) and by logic from a fifth sample, the probable profile for the third line (Jean Jacques Landry line) from a member who believes that his ancestors came from Switzerland.  A sixth sample appears to lead to Rene le jeune as well (private information).

We need DNA samples from many other Landry males who know their pedigree to fill in the many missing slots. Then this website can be a major resource for the many male Landrys who do not know their ancestry.  If you have a documented and unrepresented Landry lineage please help.  If you join as a member of the Landry SurnameDNA Project you will get a discount on the price of the test.  If cost is a major factor for you and you are from the Rene le jeune Landry line (my line), contact me at londereeb@missouri.edu and we’ll see if something can be worked out.  My only benefit is that it may help me to fill in several missing ancestors between my great grandfather and Rene le jeune Landry.
