Shannon Surname DNA Project

The Shannon Surname DNA Project is being accomplished in conjunction with Family Tree DNA. Several Shannon surnamed individuals have submitted DNA samples to the project for analysis.

Y-DNA will, in many cases confirm links to other similarly named people. This site is affiliated with the Shannon surname Y-DNA website and welcomes your participation. The goals of the project are:

  1. To identify major Shannon family groups.
  2. To share genealogical information.
  3. Within each major Shannon family group, find and encourage two Shannon males to represent that group by DNA testing
  4. To provide an on-going and growing resource for all Shannon researchers. 
  5. To enlarge our Shannon DNA database 
We encourage your participation in this  project.
