Palmer yDNA Project - Goals

  • To test males surnamed Palmer (and variant spellings)
  • To share these results, and the documentary record of Palmer testers among ourselves.
    • In this regard, please be aware that there are now several other companies offering DNA testing. To share DNA test results beyond FTDNA, please consider posting your results to Ysearch, http://www.ysearch.org. The tester can post his own results there, or the Palmer Project administrators can with the permision of the tester.
    • I am starting an email distribution list, one-way from me only, for Palmer testers, and non-testers, who may be interested in our Project. If you are a non-tester and wish to be included, please send email to me (my email address at top).
  • To determine by DNA testing and the documentary record, relationships between different Palmer families.
  • To build a social network between researchers and cousins with similar research topics.
