BIDDINGTON/BEDDINGTON Surname Study DNA Project
« on: Monday 06 March 17 10:55 GMT (UK) »
May I make an appeal for some assistance?

I’ve long been conducting a one-name study into the surnames Bettington, Beddington, Bedington, Biddington and Bittington (there’s a précis here - http://one-name.org/name_profile/bettington/). These names have strong roots in the Forest of Dean.  With the documentary study now so well developed I am extending it further to include DNA testing in the hope of detecting connections to other folks with the names in Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

I’m therefore looking for suitable participants. If anybody can put me in touch with chaps bearing one of the names, with their male line tracing back to the Forest and who might be willing to participate then I’d much appreciate it. I can be reached through here or the contact email on the mentioned précis page.
