Family Tree DNA Allen Project Background and Results pages:
The Allen DNA Project is partnering with the Allen Guild of One Name Studies in an exciting new Research Endeavor. The Allen DNA Project is a US based group, but is very interested in expanding our membership to a world-wide audience by actively seeking out Allens from England, Scotland, Ireland, Mainland Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or anywhere else on the planet. Additionally, any spelling variation of the Allen surname is welcome: Allan, Allyn, Allin, etc.
To this point, FREE yDNA 12 marker tests will be made available to any males carrying the Allen surname and residing outside the United States who are willing to join the project and participate in the testing. The only requirement for a free yDNA test in a known Allen/Allan (any spelling) lineage to at least the participant’s Great Grand-father Allen/Allan (an spelling) in any non-USA country. Additionally, The Allen DNA Project is setting aside a specific Sub-group within the Project with a full commitment of assistance from Allen Project Co-Administrator Dr. Eric Allen who will be overseeing this specific International Sub-group.
We are a 100% volunteer and donation driven group and love our research or we would not be involved in these efforts. With that said, we will always facilitate a FREE yDNA kit request as long as the participant meets the general guidelines listed above of a non-USA origin for his Allen/Allan/Allin/etc. Great Grandfather or further back in time.
However, any Allen male with the ability to pay for a kit on their own and to allow us to help other participants in financial need would benefit the entire Allen DNA Project and be very appreciated! Any Allen male with any interest in an immediate yDNA kit order to be paid for with their personal funds may go to this link and process the order with a built in discount! Our support and assistance will be just as complete and whole-hearted as if we paid for the kit---you have our word!
