|After much consideration and extensive research, a few of us have decided to start a Manley/Manly DNA Family Tree.
This DNA tree uses the males of the paternal line, checking 12 specific markers to determine genetic ancestry. This test is ONLY for genealogical purposes.
With the constant struggle to determine which (if any) of the "Colonial" branches link to one another and where in the UK (England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland) they originated we agree this is the solution. The markers determine the presence of a common ancestor.
At this point we have one Manley who is a descendant of the Poulton, Cheshire, England Manleys participating. Other lines represented are Fermanagh, Ireland and Cheshire, England and my line traced back to the 1600s in Maryland, US.
The test results (the surname itself and markers) are the only thing made available to others, through the site Family Tree DNA @ http://www.familytreedna.com/surname.asp
We are seeking a male descendant of the Denbighshire, Wales Manley family who might be interested in participating in the project.
We have a site @ http://freepages.history.rootsweb.com/~chatsol/ with more specific information on the project & testing process at the Family Tree DNA site.
We truely believe this will hold the key to unlocking the mystery of the relationships of our family lines, where they originated and where they migrated to.
