Announcing the Rathbone Y-DNA study

The Rathbone Y-DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!

Our project is just getting started, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Rathbone one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research, and the associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, http://www.stanford.edu/~dorcas/Rathbone.html or contacting the Group Administrator.

The surnames of interest are: Rathbone and its variations: RATHBORN(E), RATHBOURN(E), RATHBURN(E), RATHBOND, RATHBAN(D), RAWBONE etc. and including RABON(E), RADBON(E)(D), RADBAN(D).

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Rathbone or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

The Y-DNA test results contain no personal information, and you will match or be a close match to those to whom you are related.

This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry. Order your test kit TODAY!

Best Wishes
Ruth Rathbone
