Duart One-Name-Study adds DNA

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.



Duarts One and All

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.
