 Reminder: Oxfordshire Surname Project

As we mentioned last month, the Oxfordshire Family History Society has launched a new Oxfordshire surnames research project, examining surnames recorded in Oxfordshire parish registers from 1538 onwards, currently estimated at up to 20,000 key variants. One part of this is the recruitment of people who have been DNA tested and are not yet part of the Oxfordshire DNA project on FamilyTreeDNA. As an incentive, OFHS has donated the cost of six Y-67 tests to be won in a competition. Any male (or female who could persuade a male relative to take the test) is eligible. More information on the OFHS blog.
