The Citie of Raleigh how it became The Lost Colony
Story of Roanoke, Sir Walter Raleigh’s Lost Colony
The Lost Colony of
Roanoke….a romantic mystery that the history books
haven’t treated very kindly, or at best, not
accurately. Most people think of a young, loving
mother holding an infant daughter, and then the
picture fades to grey, oblivion, because we don’t
know what happened next.
For the rest of the story - Link
There are three presentations at YOUTUBE you might enjoy seeing what is presented. Although, nothing of the REAL colonists is known for sure, we continue to hunt.
The DNA Projects:
goal of this DNA project is to compile a data base
of individuals whose names are closely related to
the Lost Colony project AND those whose genealogy
and family history makes them a good candidate to
actually be connected to the colonists or the Native
tribes in the geographic area of interest. Clearly,
if the colonists survived, they assimilated into one
or more tribes.
people are interested in joining the project to
compare their DNA to that of the colonists. Plain and
simple, we don’t have the DNA of the colonists yet,
or if we do, we don’t yet have the documentation to
have established three different projects, each with
its own special focus, to help us in our quest to
find the colonists.
What Are the
have three Lost Colony projects, as follows:
1. The Y-line DNA project,
for males who have a colonist surname or a surname
of interest and whose families come from either
Eastern North Carolina or England or have Native
2. The mitochondrial DNA project,
for males or females whose maternal line carries the
Lost Colony surnames or surnames of interest and who
are from Eastern North Carolina or have Native
3. The Family Finder project who
is for anyone who believes they are descended from
the Lost Colonists.
This project was created specifically for
those who have taken the Family Finder test.
in the Y DNA project or the mitochondrial DNA
project should also join the Family Finder project
if they take the Family Finder test.
Because we are trying to build a data base of “likely candidates”, at this time we must restrict the DNA portion of the project to those who meet the criteria as set forth below.
Donations for DNA Testing can be made directly to Family Tree DNA's Lost Colony General Fund by contacting Family Tree DNA.
Use this link http://www.familytreedna.com/public/LostColonyYDNA
Family Tree DNA until used for funding a Lost Colony DNA test or tests.
Administrators are volunteers and receive no compensation or incentives
from Family Tree DNA, or any other DNA company or any genealogy company
as Ancestry.com or others
You do not have to DNA test to be part of the group, but if you have a surname of interest, it would help document your lineage. To join the research group contact one of the staff via
email links at staff bios.
