Pullinger FamilyTree DNA Project Website- Background



Bullinger, Pillinger, Pollinger, Pullenger, Pullinger


Welcome to the Pullinger worldwide DNA project which includes the variants Pillinger, PollingerPullenger and Bullinger. If you wish to go ahead and order a test, proceed to the order form for more information and prices. The 37 marker Y-DNA test is the best value for money.

Take a look at the News and Results sections on the About This Group tab above for an explanation of the results so far. A table of the numerical results may be viewed from the Y-DNA Results tab.

Did all Pullinger share a common ancestor or did the name develop independently in different parts of the country or the world? How do you fit in? This project can find the answers.

The project is open to any male with the surname Pullinger or any variant. The Y-DNA test is used for male line family history purposes because Y-DNA is passed down from fathers to sons through the generations in the same manner that surnames are passed down. By testing Y-DNA it is possible to compare the results of two or more men and determine whether they have a common ancestor and descend from the same branch of the family. Y-DNA tests are currently available for 12, 25, 37, 67 or 111 markers. The Y-DNA37 marker test is the best option to choose initially as it provides the best value for money and is the test that we recommend. If your budget allows the Y-DNA67 marker test is the best long term option.

The Y-DNA test tests your direct paternal line, which would be your father, your father's father, your father's father's father, and so on back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have the surname Pullinger or a variant. If you believe there is a Pullinger (or variant) in your direct male line, even if you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, please encourage a male in your Pullinger family line to participate. Females may sponsor a close male relative such as a father or brother or uncle or cousin to test on their behalf (see General Fund below).

The General Fund section below is a facility provided by Family Tree DNA to enable people to sponsor or part sponsor tests for other people. As administrator I receive notifications of any donations made and will liaise between sponsors and testees to ensure that orders for tests are placed correctly.

Contact us if you have any questions or would like advice. We will help you interpret and evaluate your results, and will help testees extend and verify their paper research.
