The Crow DNA Project
My father had sent me a few emails containing some charts. I was able to utilize them on ancestry.com and successfully traced my lineage back four generations further than my father had. However, I did come across a potential issue in regard to adding individuals to my “tree” who may not actually belong. While reviewing my father’s old emails, I stumbled upon a link to an old website discussing the Crow DNA Project, which was currently underway. This was the only way for me to confirm that I was accurately tracing my lineage. The Crow(e) DNA Study Project utilizes Family Tree DNA in Houston, Texas (familytreedna.com) for its DNA testing.
The Crow DNA Project was initiated in January of 2003 and has since grown to include over 600 members. This study was established prior to the popularity of DNA testing. 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 in 1547, Isle of Man, DNA Kit 28728.
I am a part of the “Green” DNA Crows and can trace my DNS back to Sir William Crow, born in 1547, Isle of Man.
DNA testing is a valuable tool in solving brick walls in our research. It identifies individuals who are related to us, proves or disproves theories regarding our ancestors, determines a location for further research, and validates our existing research.
Take a look at the Family Tree DNA website for more information. The Crow(e) DNA Study Project uses Family Tree DNA in Houston Texas familytreedna.com to do their DNA testing. Here is a listing of all of the Crow DNA Groups.
