Y-DNA Test Wanted - Descendants

« Back to Projects Dashboard

Project Tags

view all


This is a project aimed at tracing descendants of lines where a Y-DNA test is wanted.

Profiles listed here will be for males, looking to find (more) descendants in direct male line, either to confirm existing tests or to test a line that has not been tested yet.

If you are a direct male descendant of the males listed in this project, then a test might be particularly interesting, as there are others interested in the results. In some occasions there might also be people willing to sponsor a test, fully or partially. Tests typically cost from $49 to $339, depending on how extensive the test is.


For more information on these, see also the Y-haplogroup projects.

Wanted Male Lines


Dersom din direkte agnatiske ane (direkte farslinje) er listet her, er det flere som er interessert i din Y-DNA-test.

Se også gjennom listen over eldste kjente ane i direkte farslinje for menn som allerede har testet via Norgesprosjektet DNA (se Y-results). Om du finner navn på din eldste kjente agnatiske ane her, så kan du ta en liten Y-DNA test (for tiden $49) for å kontrollere om slektsgranskingen stemmer.

Les mer om slik testing på DIS Norges DNA-sider og Norgesprosjektet FTDNA.


  • James McDowall, born ca 1810-1830, Girvan, Ayr, Scotland. James was married to Margaret McDowall - the name might possibly be from her family, her father was also a James McDowall from Ireland.
