ADDITIONAL DNA INFORMATION

The question was asked if I could provide any names and information that I have received on the participants in the DNA study.  What I have is a list of names, most with genealogical notes that they thought I would be interested in.  So, this I will be happy to pass along.

All participants show 32 or more matched markers to each other. So, if you are doing a family tree, there will someday be a way to show all the relations.

Note that on some profiles they set where the comparison sample came from.  Lots of clues there for you.

About carrothersclan

After studying the history, the stories and even the tears of the Carrothers Journey, it is time to start writing them down so all the Carrothes can read them. When I learned that there is DNA proof that we are all related, it is time to join together.
