Update on the search for my Proctor Y-DNA...

Just a quick post to announce that my Proctor first cousin (once removed) has graciously agreed to provide his Y-DNA and the kit has been ordered from FTDNA and is on its way! This came about much sooner than I expected, but has been a long time coming. Proof that persistence does pay off! I can't wait to analyze and report the results in a couple of weeks! For those who may not have read my earlier post about my search for my maternal grandfather's Y-DNA signature, please read it here.

On another note, I posted information about the Proctor DNA Project on a couple of genealogy boards this week and was happily surprised to receive a number of promising inquiries, including correspondence with the webmaster of the fantastic House of Proctor Genealogy site. He has kindly offered to post a link to our project on his heavily visited website which should greatly improve its visibility.

I am looking forward to making the project a great success for all of those involved!

[Disclosure - My company StudioINTV has an existing production agreement with FTDNA that has no bearing on the opinions I express. I receive no other compensation in relation to any of the companies or products referenced in my blog.]

  1. I am a Proctor that may be descended from John Graye Proctor as well! I'm new to this. What was the y-dna? I've been tested and am trying to get all of this sorted out.
