New DNA Test Results

Great news relating to the DNA Project:

This information relates to the Lincolnshire tree Chart 18: Joseph (1761-1831) and Ann Pask née Hand, who lived in Caythorpe, Lincolnshire.

As reported in the previous blog DNA Project in July. We hoped this test would establish whether the Lincolnshire Pasks from Charts 01, 03, and 18 are all related.We are delighted to say that they are. The 278 people from Chart 18 will now be merged with Chart 1, making a total of 1365 in this family tree.

Once we established that there was a connection, it confirmed that Joseph Pask, who lived in Caythorpe was the same Joseph Paske who was baptised on 4 April 1762 in Wellingore, Lincolnshire. He was the son of William and Mary PASKE. These records will be merged in the next website update. 

The results can be seen on the Family Tree DNA website in the Pask DNA Project.

Thank you all concerned for taking part in the project. We welcome any male Pa(r)s(k)(e)(que) to participate in the Pask DNA Project - do contact us for further details. This is a major contribution to the Pask One-Name Study.
