Britton International DNA Project
The BRITTON project is open to men with the name BRITTON, BRITTAIN, BRETTON, BRITTEN, etc. or to any man who believes he descends from a BRITTON male. Our goals are to identify BRITTON families living today and trace their ancestry back as far as records permit, which for some may be the late Mediaeval or Tudor period. Since the Y chromosome is unique to males and follows the paternal line, Y-DNA testing is an ideal tool for genealogists hoping to trace their paternal ancestry. A simple, cheek-swab test will determine quickly and easily whether two males with the same surname share a recent common ancestor. Y-DNA tests do not reveal any medically-sensitive information and Family Tree DNA enforces strict policies to protect the privacy of individuals tested by the company. Participants from the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, France, etc. are all welcome.
