I am working on a project for the Hiram Charles family of Lancaster County, PA and would like to hear from any members who are willing to provide a DNA sample for family research. Depending on your family relationship, a DNA kit may be provided.
This project will use Autosomal DNA, so you won’t be excluded because of gender. The results may be uploaded to GedMatch, but would not be identified with any of your information.
For further questions about this project, send an email through this website.
My Duart One-Name-Study will begin to add a DNA component. In the next couple of weeks I will work on the website where you can log on and obtain the DNA kit for reduced price, from FamilyTreeDNA. http://www.familytreedna.com/ My goal is to prove Scottish descent.
I have traced John Duart b. 1784 in N. Ireland, but have not been very successful in getting back beyond his parents, who I am pretty sure are Thomas and Margaret (Ferguson) Duart. Although the One-Name-Study is not necessarily to research specific family lines, I had hoped to find further information about mine.
I have also had difficulty with the ONS website and putting a spread sheet on line. If anyone is tech savvy and thinks they know how to do this, I would be open to your assistance.
I am looking for Duarts who are male descendants from John Duart b. 1784, d. 1829, Ontario Canada, to take a DNA test. This would help in determining the family line and whether we are actually part of the MacLean’s of Duart. If you would contact me through this website, I will give you further information. If you have already done a DNA test and would be willing to share the results, it would be greatly appreciated.
I am trying to add another dimension to the Duart One-Name-Study with DNA test results and on-line database.
Just an update on my progress with the article on Gr. Gr. Grandfather, John Wesley – I’m still hoping to hear from the Duart relatives with anything they might have on John Wesley. I’ve located a couple of books on his 7th Cavalry to give some background and continue to do research on their participation in the battles around Shelbyville,TN.
I’m also looking into adding a DNA study to my Duart One-Name-Study. Only through DNA can we probably make the connection to the MacLean’s of Duart and Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull, Scotland.
I’m continuing to gather Duart information, but am finding it difficult to add the information to my DUART ONS website. If anyone has a suggestion, I’m open to anything. It appears that the Guild websites are not conducive to data sets, but you need to link it somewhere else. I’ll continue to log all the information I receive and will work out a way for others to look at it.
