Iowa DNA Project April Update

With 161 members the Iowa DNA Project is gaining momentum.  139 members have completed the Family Finder, or autosomal testing, and 90 of those members already have matches within the project. Once a week new matches are notified of their connections, and assisted with making contact. Each new member increases the likelihood of finding matches and learning more about our ancestors and the settlement of Iowa. Featured image Polk, Black Hawk, Fayette, Buchanan and Pottawattamie Counties are currently our most common counties of origin, but as indicated by the black dots on the map, most counties are being researched by members looking to expand their understanding of their Iowa family history.  The project presently represents 386 Iowan surnames. Is your surname and county represented?  If not, consider joining! If you don’t already have an account at FTDNA but have tested with another company, consider transferring your raw data.
