Dunbar Y-DNA Success Stories
Will you discover unknown ancestors by joining the Dunbar Y-DNA project?
Below are a few actual success stories that some of our Project
Participants have discovered using DNA. Will DNA testing help you as it
has the men below? What's holding you back? Stop wondering and "JOIN"
the Project today !!
1. The Dunbar Y-DNA Project has its second 67/67 "exact" marker
match. The first 67/67 match was between two Robert of Hingham, MA 1693,
USA descendants. The 2nd exact match….Both men have completely different
pedigrees…one ancestor immigrated to Canada…..the other to America. We'd
have never put these two men together if not for DNA testing. Plus, due
to extensive Ireland research by one of these Participants, we may have
found a descendant of the brother of their ancestor. Both Participants
are scrambling to prove that connection. To top it off, we may have
found the whereabouts of a third brother.
2. One Participant has been trying to prove descent from William &
Catherine Dunbar of Meeting House Springs, PA c1730 for many years. He
lacked the actual paper proof, but all evidence pointed to descent. An
APB was broadcast on this Forum for an actual descendant of William &
Catherine and William Dunbar, III stepped in, tested, and proved this
man's long sought after evidence using DNA. Plus, both of these men have
found 6 additional new cousins they didn't know they had before the
3. Four men made this next story a success. 3 are what we call
"John of CT 1694" descendants. Each tested and verified they all descend
from John Dunbar 1694. However, John of CT has never been able to get
back across the "pond". It wasn't until another man joined the Project,
with a completely different pedigree that dates back to 1780 Castle Fin,
Ireland, that we found success. All "John of CT" descendants now have a
new area of the world to research with hope of finding their shared
common ancestry with this man in Ireland.
4. There are now 20+ men who've discovered they share common
ancestry with a UK Lord Lyons Court verified Crinan c975 descendant.
Will your DNA show you do too?
Y-DNA testing can determine if you share a common ancestor with another
Dunbar or group of Dunbar's. DNA testing will not uncover health
problems nor can it be used for any identity profiling such as
paternity, alimony, or anything legal. To find out how DNA testing can
help with your research, please visit our website below.
