More Fletcher Clan and Family History Research:
- The Fletcher DNA Project is being conducted by the Fletcher Family Research Bulletin. The aims of the project are wide-ranging and far-reaching. Participation is invited from Fletcher males (due to the nature of the DNA testing process) worldwide. Participation from English and Scottish Fletchers will assist in understanding the connection to the various US families as well as to establish ancestries and relationships of current researchers who focus on their UK and Commonwealth connections. The Clan Gregor DNA project has already reported some interesting results – giving some indication of what is and what is not possible with this form of research.
