Newfoundland and Labrador Family Finder DNA Project This project is for people who have ancestry from Newfoundland and Labrador and who have taken (or plan to take) Family Tree DNA’s Family Finder test. Some Noel data has already been collected. From time to time there are special prices on the testing. This study is probably more significant if my test represents the Newfoundland Noels adequately in Dominic’s study below.

The Noel Surname DNA Project

Dominic Noel is hoping to enlist Noel’s of all lines into a DNA project to determine their relationship to each other. The candidates must be males because they carry the XY chromosome pair and it is based on the Y chromosome which is passed from father to son. The ladies who have the XX pair would have to furnish a cheek swab from a brother, Uncle or cousin.
