This project will seek to connect the various Turyn lines on Geni. We are a very small clan and we should be able to do it.

We will use -:

  • paper-trail
  • oral history
  • geneological research resources
  • DNA testing. - FTDNA

I will be setting up a "Turyn" group on for sharing our results. - YSEARCH

I understand that some Turyn's may have tested elsewhere. I will be setting up an account with (as soon as I get my DNA results back) and we will work with Turyn's who have results from other websites to upload their data to

37 or 67 marker yDNA test

If you are considering testing at I recommend that you take the 37 or 67 marker yDNA test.

I have taken the 37 marker test and will post my results here as soon as I have them.

We should also post any other results that various Turyns have.

Thanks for joining!
