FamilyTreeDNA have announced a one week sale with some very good discounts. If you have Oxfordshire ancestry and were thinking of a DNA test now is a good time to buy one. Maybe you can buy a test as a present for a relative for Christmas? We run a project researching Oxfordshire ancestors and their families and are especially keen to have males with their pure male line ancestry based in Oxfordshire tested to help out the surname research project, although are happy to have all Oxfordshire ancestry testers in the project. It would be great to have more people from Minster Lovell and surrounding villages in the project as it helps us to understand our village history. You can see all the surnames we are researching and need DNA for at: Oxfordshire surname Project
