Ulster Heritage DNA

The Ulster Heritage DNA Project continues to grow very rapidly. The Project continues to unite previously unknown "cousins" and often is crossing heritage frontiers in unexpected ways. The growth has not been unexpected as there are so many descendants of Ulster researching their heritage. The size of the database is becoming almost unmanageable. Therefore, the Project will soon need to be divided into sub-groupings. The Project is at Ulster Heritage DNA Project.
