New DNA Results

Another excellent result in the DNA Project.

This information relates to Chart 01, one of Lincolnshire main families - William Pask (c1695-), who lived in Wellingore, Lincolnshire (Stuart's own ancestors).

This information relates to the main Lincolnshire tree - descendants of Johannis [John] and Elizabeth Pask née Archer, who lived in Lincolnshire.

Whilst we cannot found the documentary evidence to link the Lincolnshire families from Chart 1, and Chart 3, today we heard the initial results of the DNA tests currently in progress from a descendant of Chart 3.

Whilst this is only the first 12 of 37 markers, all 12 match with the 3 DNA tests in Chart 1. This is superb news, as this means they all share the same DNA.

The results can be seen on the Family Tree DNA website in the Pask DNA Project. Later next month we will include the results on the DNA website page. Also these families will be merged in the next website update. 

Thank you to all concerned for taking part in the DNA 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.
