Dear Lost Colony Y-Line DNA participant,


As I mentioned in the recent newsletter, we are working to provide genealogical data for each one of our Lost Colony surname participants and to be sure each person actually belongs in the Lost Colony project. 


Please go to your surname and find your kit with your information.  Here is the link:


If your kit number has no genealogical or family history information, we need that from you.  Please provide it within the next week if possible.  You will receive one reminder, if necessary, and if we do not receive the information after that, you will be removed from the project.  L


Since you have joined the Lost Colony Y-Line DNA project, it means that you believe that your paternal line is or may be somehow connected to the Lost Colony.  Your paternal line follows your surname, your father, his father, his father, on up the family tree.


Iím sure you had a good reason for joining the Lost Colony project, but we need to know what it is.


Would you please let us know why you joined the project and what your link is to the Colonists, the surnames or the area?  We would also appreciate it if you would provide something for the research or history portions of your page, and if you havenít already, something for the genealogy section as well.  Just complete the questions red.  I have left space for answers.


1.  Your kit number ________________________________________


2.  Your name _______________________________


3.  Why did you join the Lost Colony project?




4.  How is your Y-line DNA line connected to the colonists, the surnames, Native people or the location?






The 3 sections of the website are divided into genealogy, research and history.


Genealogy Ė typically this would be the specific genealogy of the line listed here on the siteÖ.so the mtdna for you. 


I am including a mini-genealogy form below for you to complete which should help you to document your maternal ancestry.  Alternatively, you can upload a gedcom to either your personal results page at Family Tree DNA or mitosearch and let us know that you have done so.


5.  Please provide a brief writeup (2 paragraphs to one page in length) on your line! 





6.  Mini-Genealogy From Participant to Oldest Ancestor (completeform below)


Completing the form below, enter the current generationís name in line 1 and add each generation on subsequent lines through your oldest ancestor.  You donít need to provide personal info for living individuals, just a placeholder name. 



Ancestorís Birth Name

Birth Date

Death Date

Birth Location

Death Location

Other Residence

Spouses Name with Birth-Death Info










Your father








His father








His father








His father
























































































7.  Do you have a family website that includes this line?  If so, please provide the link.




Research Ė this would include such items as papers youíve written about the family, deeds youíve extracted, or other things relevant to your particular line.


8.  Do you have research items to contribute?  If so, paste here or send separately.




History Ė this would include any general history of the area or a tribe or something not included above.


9.  Do you have history to share?  If so, paste here or send separately.




10.  Are you willing to have your e-mail address and first name listed as a contact for your kit?  If so, what is the e-mail you want listed?




11.  Are you willing to be a coordinator or resource for any of the Lost Colony surnames?  If so, which ones?




We are working to be sure that everyone who should be included in the Lost Colony, is in fact included, and that folks who donít have a potential link to the colonists have the opportunity to join a project more suited to their needs. 


If possible, please reply within the next week or so.


Thank you very much,


Roberta Estes
