The Oxfordshire Geographic DNA Project

In February 2013, the Oxfordshire Family History Society established a geographical dual DNA project for Oxfordshire. The main aim of the project is to identify DNA in its various forms that might be characteristic of the county.

The project is open to anybody – male or female – who can document a strong family association with the county either on the paternal or maternal lines. At a minimum, a participant’s Oxfordshire roots should go back more than three generations and at least to the mid-to-late 19th century.

To learn more about the project, and about DNA in general, visit the project website on the FamilyTreeDNA website. If you have already had your DNA tested and want to join the Oxfordshire Geographic Dual DNA Project, you can do so here.

If you have questions, please contact the project administrators, Susan Honore and Richard Merry, at
