The membership of our
group has now increased to 51, and we are still slowly growing.
Some of the email addresses of others who have expressed an
interest were unfortunately lost in my recent computer problems. We are
always happy to greet new members to our project or to hear of possible
recruits who might be interested.
We would like to have
more recruits from Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa
or any of the worldwide places where the various Barnard/Bernard
families have spread.
Please note that the
Y-DNA link on the navigation panel has been changed to take you to the
latest results update chart on our project FTDNA site. In order to
return to this site just click on the back arrow.
Although our project
was started as a Y-DNA project with the express purpose of finding
matches on the male lines, many of our members have branched out into
mtDNA and other types of DNA tests.
My time is somewhat
limited due to the number of activities I am involved in, but I will
look into setting up additional links to some of these results when I
can. In the meantime you can find all the information on your personal
page at https://my.familytreedna.com/login.aspx.
To access your page you need your kit number and ID.
Many of our United
States members descend from immigrants from the U.K. and one of our aims
is to eventually link up to families in the U.K. from which the
immigrants came. It would be fabulous if we reached a situation where
such families were able to compare their paper research results.
Barnards and those
with close variant names have spread all over the world, and certainly
to places like Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, and I
was informed that one of my family members settled in Japan. There are
also many of those names in the rest of Europe that would be very
welcome to our project too. We don't care where they live, all are
welcome to join us.
It would be much
appreciated if anyone could let me know of any mistakes they find on
this site, or if they have news that might be of interest to Barnard
