Description
The general purpose of the Byers project is to learn more about our heritage. Can we answer specific questions about our origins? Is Byers surname German or Scotch? Can we distinguish between various colonial ancestor lines? Participation is open to those with the surname and variants. In addition to the name being tested it would be helpful to have family group sheets (excluding persons living) and the name, date and place of birth of the oldest known ancestor. This information will help in analyzing results.
Background
Byers participants with all variants of spelling are welcomed. The general purpose of the Byers project is to learn more about our ancestors in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Can we answer specific questions about our country of origin? YES. Can we distinguish between various colonial ancestor lines? YES. Do the Canadian Byers share the same ancestor y-DNA? YES. Participation is open to those males with the surname and spelling variants of Byers/Byars/& variations who do not know their ancestors origins or suspect the origins on the European continent or part of the British Isles. In addition to the name being tested it would be helpful to have family group sheets (excluding persons living) and the name, date and place of birth of the oldest known ancestor. This information will help in analyzing results.
