Rose DNA Project - Results


the aid of Y-DNA test results and the sharing of family lineages by our participants, we have been able to
determine various groups of Roses and related surnames (see Surnames listing), and their ancestors. When
someone matches the Y-DNA results within a group, we analyze the match to make a determination of who they
probably descend from. Below is a listing of the earliest ancestors we have identified to date:

Whenever a Rose DNA Project member does not have an immediate match to his Y-DNA results, we group these by
Haplogroup until a match is found. As more Rose and related surname participants take Y-DNA tests and  join the
project, a future match may be found. In this, Y-DNA is a powerful tool! To see an alphabetical list of families in
