Edgar Family DNA Project

The Edgar family DNA project continues to go from strength to strength answering the questions:

         Which branch of the Edgar family are you descended from?

         Where did your ancestors come from?

         Would you like to find lost family members?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then why not take part in the Edgar family DNA project.  This is the first study of its type to ever have been carried out on our family, this project plans to fill in the gaps in all our family trees.  If you would like to participate in the project contact Steve Edgar by clicking on the link below:
