The Crow DNA Project
My father had sent me some emails with some charts. I was able to use them on ancestry.com and was able to track out four generations further than my father did. The one thing I was able to see, that it is very easy to add others to your “tree” that may really not belong. In looking at the old emails from my father I found a link to an old web site that spoke about a Crow DNA Project that was now underway. This was the only way for me to know for sure if I was tracking back on the right path. The Crow(e) DNA Study Project uses Family Tree DNA in Houston Texas familytreedna.com to do their DNA testing.
The Crow DNA Project was started in Jan. 2003 and has grown to a membership of over 600 members. This study was started before DNA was the in thing to do. Nineteen unrelated (in modern times) Y-DNA Crow DNA family groups of Crows have been identified that were in the USA before 1850, with one of the 19 group’s oldest “Green” DNA Crows reportedly dating back to, Sir William Crow, born 1547, Isle of Man, DNA Kit 28728.
I am part of the “Green” DNA Crows and can trace my DNS back to Sir William Crow, born 1547, Isle of Man.
Why should I use DNA Testing? DNA testing solves brick walls in our research. It Identifies others who are related to us. Proves or disprove theories regarding our ancestors. Determine a location for further research. And it Validates our existing research.
