Crozier DNA project

Calling all Croziers!

The CROZIER Y-DNA Project is now up and running with FamilyTreeDNA at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Crozier

The project has three main aims: discover the origins of the surname, identify the geographical location of the various branches of the family and help individuals overcome their genealogical brick wall by linking up with their genetic cousins. The project is open to males who carry the Crozier/Crosier surname (and variant spellings). If you are female you will require to find a brother, father or uncle to supply a sample.

This month is a particularly good time to join as there is a discount sale on Y-chromosome DNA tests at FamilyTreeDNA available until the 30th of September. The Project recommends taking the 37 marker test as this narrows matches and gives a better calculation to the most recent common ancestor. It is possible to join the Project from this link

For more information, please contact Alasdair MacDonald by e-mail at [afmac @ blueyonder.co.uk]
