< Free DNA tests


A 12 marker test (one per family) to the first 10 JOHNSONS who can trace their ancestry to Ballymoney or to the immediate surrounding region and 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 Ballymoney 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 Ballymoney, County Antrim, N. Ireland during the mid 1800s.
