My name is Mic Barnette and I am the Adminstrator of the Barnett Family Surname DNA Project. This website has the exciting task of tracing our Barnett
families genetically. If you have suggestions for this website, please send them to me. My e-mail is email@example.com
. I would like to hear about them. I would also like to have links to as many websites concerning Barnetts as
possible. If you own or know of a website concerning Barnetts let me know I would like to link to it.
This project is a scientific study using DNA, specifically the Y-Chromosomes of
males, from families with the surname Barnett. The project encompasses any surname now or previously spelled Barnet/Barnett/Barnette including any derivitive thereof.
When I was a child my grandfather told me if we spelled our name Barnet we were Jewish; If we spelled our name Barnett we were English or Irish; and if we spelled our name Barnette we were French.
During the 1920s my grandfather and some, but, not all his of brothers added the final "e" in our name. They did so at a time in history when it was popular
to be or have things that were French. So, under my Grandfather's logic he was born English/Irish and I was born French!
It is known people from other countries have come to the United States and for
whatever reason have changed the spelling of their name to Barnet/Barnett/Barnett. Some of the countries and possible foreign origins of Barnetts are England (Barnes, Bernard, Barnard), Germany
(Barnhard/Bernhardt, Barndt), France (Barnard/Bernard), Italy (Bernardi), Jews from Poland and Russia (Berjinski and other spellings) Spain and Hispanic countries (Bernardo). I am sure there are many others.
IN FACT, aside from those whose not too recent ancestry was in the British Isles, we, also, have a number of participants in our group whose ancestors
originated in Eastern and Western Europe. We have a couple enclaves of participants related to one another, however, we have more Barnetts unrelated
to one another than related. This can be visualized in the charts found on the Genetic Distance pages.

Earliest Proven Ancestors & Lineages of Participants:
This is one of the most important pages within the website. View this page to see the ancestral families and lineage of each participant. An email link to the
contact person for that participant is appGenetic Distance 12 Markersended to each lineage.
DYS Marker Results and Analysis
This page has the genetic markers and genetic distances between those test participants in the Barnett Surname DNA Project.
The easiest way to discover how related one participant is to another is by viewing the following Genetic Distance Charts. These charts show the genetic
distance, or, relatedness between each participant, for each marker category in which the participant has participated. Those test categories are the 12 marker, the 25 marker, 37 marker and 67 marker tests.

Place Names Associated with Participants
This page lists the places where a participant's ancestors (each generation from
the earliest known ancestor down to the participant) lived. Check this page to see if your ancestors lived in any of the same places as the participant's ancestors.
Surnames Associated with Participants
This page lists the surnames of ancestral spouses and the spouses of an ancestor's children in each generation from the earliest known ancestor down to
the participant. Check this page to see if the surnames in your family match any in the families of our participants.

BARNETT MITACHONDRIAL DNA TESTING
While women do not inherit their father's Y-Chromosome they do inherit and pass on to their sons and daughters their mother's Mita-chondria. Daughters
pass it along to their offspring but sons do not. With this in mind both males and females may participate in the Mita-Chondrial testing.
By clicking on the link below one may see the results of those in our Project who are participating in the Mita-Chondrial DNA testing. Anyone wishing to contact any of those participants, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and I will contact the person and have them contact you.
