Lovrien genealogist Michelle Lovrien Slabaugh has started a new project in one of most exciting new areas of genealogy: Genetic Genealogy! The project, operated through FamilyTreeDNA.com, collects samples using simple “cheek scraper” DNA kits, and provides you with paternal markers (Y-DNA), maternal markers (mitochondrial DNA) or both. The goal of the project is to ultimately connect our current American generations with our ancestors in England and our cousins around the world.

The project is seeking data for the paternal line only at this time; therefore, you must be a male Lovrien to participate. FamilyTreeDNA.com is offering a significant group discount on their products as part of our project. The 37-marker test (normally $259) is only $149.
