    hi there – I think there may be an error in the trees of the following folks:

    Would like to help investigate this – can someone with information about these families get in touch? Thanks!

      Thank you for your interest in the Perry yDNA Surname project. Are you already a member of the project or do you have a family connection to the folks represented by the kit numbers listed in your query? If not, we’d be pleased to discuss how one can join and participate in the Perry yDNA project.
      When people join the project, one of the things we ask is that they complete a paternal line pedigree (as much as they can) that goes back to the most distant male Perry ancestor as this is a yDNA project. It’s recommended that the pedigree should be proved with documents such as wills, deeds, court records, family Bibles, letter, etc, not copied from trees they may find online.
      As the administrators of this project are volunteers, there is a limit what we can do and verification of pedigrees is one task we cannot take on. However, many of the Family Groups have a group manager to work with members to address questions such as yours and they work together on further research and documentation of their male Perry line. Family Group 2 does not have a dedicated manager at this time so I will make every effort to help you. If you are already a member of the Perry yDNA project, let me know and I can contact the members of Family Group 2 on your behalf. It will then be up to them to make a decision on the level of activity and research they can manage.
      Thank you so much for your interest and enthusiasm in Perry surname research. I look forward to your response. Janice Almond
