Free DNA tests/Barry
From ISOGG Wiki
Free introductory (12 marker) YDNA test for any man who is paternally related to any of the following:
- The original Barry settlers in Ireland who arrived with the Norman-Welsh invasion in the 12th century
- Colonel Charles Barry of Santry, Ireland (1660-1730)
- James Redmond Barry of Donoughmore, Cork, Ireland, last claimant in 1825 to the title of Earl of Barrymore
- John Smith-Barry of Cheshire, England (1725-1784)
- The deBari or deBary family of Tournai, Belgium
The relationship must be established on the basis of primary documentation, which may include genealogical books and published pedigrees, but may not be based only on online family trees.
Sue Barry has agreed to sponsor a 12-marker test for a Barry male that doesn't fit in the lineages specified, or who doesn't know his lineage.
Barre, Barree, Barrey, Barrie, Barrivane, Barry, Barrymore, deBarra, deBarre, deBarri, deBary, DuBarry, and others with direct documentation of a paternal relationship
