How to be a Sponsor

One of the primary objectives of this project is to help all Morrisons know their family history as revealed through DNA. For DNA results to be useful, we must have DNA results of others to compare them to.

In the case of the Morrisons, it is essential that we have participation of those Morrisons whose families have been located for generations in the ancestral Morrison seats in Scotland. These seats include Lewis and Harris as well as various sites on the mainland.

However, because they already know where their families come from, those Morrisons who still live in these ancestral seats are the least likely to be willing to fund their own DNA testing.

Recognizing the benefit to all Morrisons of this DNA study, we are opening a Morrison DNA Project Fund with Family Tree DNA. All moneys contributed to this fund will be used to support DNA tests for Morrison families that are considered key to the project as determined by the Morrison DNA Project Administrator. Priority will be placed using these funds for DNA tests for Morrison families still residing in their ancestral seats.

All Morrisons, whether participating in the project or not, are encouraged to consider a contribution. To make a contribution, please visit the website below:
