New DNA Results for Chart 34 & Chart 49 - Monmouthshire

This information relates to Chart 34, the descendants of Philip Pask, (1768-1843), who lived in Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire, and
  Chart 49: Charles Pask (1760-1833) who lived in Dingestow, and Cwmcarvan, Monmouthshire #8663.

A recent DNA test has revealed a match between Chart 34, and Chart 49. They matched 32 out of 37 markers.

Whilst we cannot currently find the documentary evidence to link the Monmouthshire families from Chart 34, and Chart 49, they are probably the same family. In the next website update, we will merge all these families into one chart. The connection is probably somewhere in the 1700s, which will need further documentary research.

In the meantime, the results can be seen on the Family Tree DNA website in the Pask DNA Project.

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. DNA testing is really a major contribution to the Pask One-Name Study.
