The SLOAN Surname Project at FamilyTreeDNA- Background
Sloan, Sloane, Slone, Slown
The project originated when an attempt was made to link two Sloan family lines in the U.S.A. in the absence of a paper connection. One family line could be traced back to a George Sloan who came from Ireland in 1754. A Sloan genealogist who suspected descent from the same man but was unable to find corroborating paper records decided to try to test the connection through Y-DNA analysis instead.
We are always happy to hear from members and others interested in the project. Please contact the Group Administrator, Susan Sloan.
