Carol Hennington is the Administrator of the Finch Surname DNA Project and I, Mic Barnette, am the webmaster and co-administrator. This website
has the exciting task of tracing our Finch families genetically. If you have suggestions for this website, please send them to myself or Carol. My e-mail is email@example.com and Carol's is firstname.lastname@example.org
. We would like to hear about them. We would also like to have links to as many websites concerning Finches as possible. If you own or know of a website
concerning Finches let Carol or I know as we would like to link to it. We would also like you to establish a link to this website.
This project is a scientific study using DNA, specifically the Y-Chromosomes of males, from families with the surname Finch.
ABOUT THE FINCH SURNAME DNA PROJECT
Family Tree DNA gives the Finch Surname DNA Project free space on their website but the site where you now are is where most of our information is
actually located. You should visit our FTDNA website, however, as we do have some important information there at
In most cases links from this website will take you by hyperlink to the
FTDNA website. You will just have to remember to use your "Back Button" to return to this site.
Most important on the FTDNA site is the Marker Results of our project on the Y-Results Page at: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/finch/default.aspx?section=yresults

Earliest Proven Finch Ancestors & Lineages of Participants:
This is one of the most important genealogicallly related 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 attached to each Kit NumberPlace 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.

Genetic Distance Charts
There are three Genetic Distance Charts, one for each of the three tests conducted by FTDNA, the 12, 37 and 67 marker tests. Each chart shows the
genetic distance, or, relatedness between each participant in each respective test category. For every test chart there is a link to a Family Tree DNA chart explaining the distance for each result in that catagory.

Finch Mita-Chondrial 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 email@example.com and I will contact the person and have them contact you.
