Larry, Very interesting.
Thats famaliar, now that you mention it.

Would you have any connection to any of the current descendants?

Do you know if WWII Winston's Son Randolph had children?

As an Administrator of the Churchill DNA Project it would be interesting to test Winston's male descendants - assuming he has male descendants. They should have Spencer Churchill DNA of course rather than Churchill DNA but it would, never the less, be interesting to see their DNA signature and learn their Haplogroup, i.e population group.

We Devon Churchills are in Haplogroup I-1a which is Nordic (Viking). That is consistant with the written Devon Churchill history which was done by the first Sir Winston (well actually by his researchers). His family history says that they were from Norman Stock. The Normans (or at least some of the Normans) were descendants of the Vikings.
