Free DNA tests/Johnston

From ISOGG Wiki

< Free DNA tests


I am offering a free 12 marker test, one per family to the first 10 males with the Johnston surname from N. Ireland and/or Scotland with preference given to those with Covenanter Presbyterian ancestors during the 18th Century who lived in Balleymoney N. Ireland. I am particularly interested in those who have a reasonable chance of being related to the Archibald Harvey Johnston b. 1765 of Counties Antrim and Down, Northern Ireland (m. Martha Orr) or to his father, Archibald Harvey Johnston from Scotland. Archibald b. 1765 along with other Johnstons went to America in 1821 including John b. 1795 (m. to Martha Gault), Archibald b. 1803, William b. 1809. Their brother, James Johnston was believed to have stayed behind in Balleymoney, County Antrim, N. Ireland during the mid 1800s.
