Pemberton Griffin T-Shirt

Here is our Pemberton t-shirt featuring the Griffin – a favorite, ancient family crest of many Pemberton families. Each shirt includes a card explaining the meanings of the symbols in heraldry. The griffin is a heraldic device that would have appeared on their private letterhead, on articles of clothing like jackets and handkerchiefs, perhaps in the architecture of their houses, and almost without exception at the top of their coat of arms if the family had been awarded arms. It symbolized valor, vigilance, strength and perseverance. This seems very appropriate for a family that is known for these characteristics. The shield represents the “arms” portion of a coat of arms and the chevron (French for rafter) symbolizes protection and security. The motto in transliteration means “Seek Honor” but the words should be taken in their ancient senses of seek after and try to obtain respect, integrity, worthiness, honor and dignity.

Price is $ 10.00. To get a shopping cart and order shirts, click here.

DNA Test

Because the Pemberton Family World Wide (PFWW) is a one-name study recognized by the Guild of One-Name Studies, the Pemberton DNA Project has a special, year-round, 20% discount available at the project’s DNA testing laboratory Family Tree DNA, the world’s largest genealogical testing institution.In order to take advantage of this offer, it is necessary that the PFWW order the test kit from Family Tree DNA on behalf of our members. This item in the Pemberton Market provides a simple means for registered members (it is not a requirement that you be a dues-paying member) to purchase a test kit under the discount offer.

The Pemberton DNA Project uses only the 37 marker Y-DNA test because it analyzes markers that handed down only from fathers to sons, just like the surname Pemberton is handed down. For more information about the Pemberton DNA Project, please select it from the Genealogy menu on the left of this page.

Price is $119 (Approximately £80). To get a shopping cart and order one or more tests, click here. Please note that there are funds available to assist with the cost of tests if that is an issue.
