DNA Wanted The RUNCIMAN Surnames DNA Project would love to hear from any DNA tested descendants of the attached lineages in particular.
Direct male line RUNCIMAN (or variant surname) for yDNA testing (at least 37 markers but preferably 67)
Any descendant for autosomal DNA testing: FamilyTreeDNA's FamilyFinder test, ancestry or 23andme's DNA test, provided the results can be compared at GEDMatch.com
* the 1939 Register has many additions to the original data, usually subsequent names for women, which are shown in brackets after the original name.
