One Name Study on the Surnames POINTING, POYNTING and POINTIN:
DNA PROJECT TO REVEAL WHETHER THERE ARE COMMON ORIGINS FOR DIFFERENT FAMILIES WITH THE SURNAMES SIMILAR TO:
POINTING, POYNTING, POINTIN, POINTON, PONTING etc
A simple, painless (!) genealogical DNA test can be used to establish whether two men, with these surnames, share a common ancestor, and can give an idea of when that ancestor lived.
A project has been initiated to test men who represent the different lines. Ideally, we want several volunteers from each line.
If you are a male POINTING ( or similar surname) and would like to participate please either contact me, or apply directly for a test kit.
This can be achieved in one of two ways:
A. Utilizing commercial test which can be obtained by clicking on this link: POINTING/POYNTING DNA PROJECT
B. Utilizing free test kit provided by the non-profit making Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMGF) and can be obtained by completing this request form
Full details of what the test is and how it works are described for the analogous BARLING surname here (or in downloadable PDF format)
