Our DNA Project

Our project is open to any male Barton or man believing that he is paternally descended from a Barton male.  We also welcome men who have already yDNA tested and are matching a Barton.

The Barton Historical & Genealogical Society has a special sponsorship program for Barton families who are not already known to be represented in the Barton DNA Project.   You may receive a 37 marker test for $100 or £75 or €85.  This is less than 2/3 of the regular project price.  Contact Terry Barton to confirm eligibility and make the arrangements.

Our project also welcomes Barton descendants (male and female) who don’t have Barton as a surname but who have done the autosomal DNA test – abbreviated as “atDNA” (called “Family Finder” at FTDNA).  We are “collecting” Barton descendants (120+ to date) who have done an atDNA test, waiting for the day when Analytic Tools become powerful enough for us to fully utilize their info.
