August 5, 2015 – Today another DNA sample kit was ordered sent to a Pemberton in France. This new DNA data will soon be be added to the Pemberton DNA Project! It will be exciting to see what this one tells us about the worldwide Pemberton family. One of the major goals of the Project is to obtain Y-DNA samples from each of the 40 charts in the recently republished book Pemberton Pedigrees by Robert Charles Boileau Pemberton which came off the press a century ago and last again November as a DVD. These DNA samples would allow any male Pemberton to identify which branch of the family he comes from, or, at worst, which of a few charts he descends from – a major help to his documentary research focus. The reason for the caveat is that we may find some of the charts are more than close relatives.
