Pemberton DNA Project Tests
This is where you can order a 37 marker, Y-DNA test kit from Family Tree DNA at the year-round discounted price and be certain your test is within the Pemberton DNA Project.
Please note that the DNA sample needed for this test must come from a male. The sample is taken from the mouth by rubbing a cotton swab inside the cheek – simple, quick and painless. The Y-DNA test uses portions of the DNA that are passed only from father to son which makes it parallel to the passing down of the surname – in most cases. So to be effective in tracing a surname, the sample must come from a male whose DNA came from a male line of the surname of interest – in this case a Pemberton. There are thousands of surnames being traced using the Y-DNA test.
