    I’ve created a geographical DNA project on FamilyTreeDNA for matching paternal (Y-DNA) and maternal (mtDNA).

    If you have any FTDNA results that you suspect of having Yorkshire paternal or maternal heritage I’d love to hear from you. You can join the Yorkshire FTDNA Group here:

    If you haven’t yet taken a DNA test, you can visit the following link (which periodically offers additional discounts beyond the main FTDNA site):

    My personal Yorkshire Y-DNA heritage goes back to the village of Crayke, appproximately 13 miles north of York. Surname is Dale but suspected to be Wainwright due to an illegitimate birth (William Dale son of Mary Dale b1819 d1895).

    I hope to get some DNA matches with you soon!
