We are looking for male Griffins in the North Kerry area to take part in a y-DNA test. John Griffin in the United States has spent a number of years trying to trace his Great Grandfather William Robert Griffin, born in Ireland 1832. So far we have drawn a blank on absolute proof, but naming patterns suggest that the family may be from Ballyferriter or alternatively North Kerry. We already have volunteers from Ballyferriter, and would really appreciate a male Griffins in the Listowel/Ballylongford/Ballybunion area to take this simple DNA test, free of course.
These simple Y-DNA tests should pinpoint the area that John’s branch of the Griffin family originated in. This will help us to dig deeper and concentrate our research. Genetic genealogy is the newest and most exciting addition to genealogy research. Contact me here if you would be interested in taking part.
