How to be a Sponsor

One of the primary objectives of this project is to help members of various Westbrook families learn 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 Westbrooks, it is useful that we have participation of those Westbrooks whose families have been located for generations in the ancestral seats in England, The Netherlands or elsewhere.

However, because they may already know where their families come from, those Westbrooks 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 Westbrooks of this DNA study, we are opening a Westbrook DNA Project Fund with Family Tree DNA. All moneys contributed to this fund will be used to support DNA tests for Westbrook families that are considered key to the project as determined by the Westbrook DNA Project Administrator. Priority will be placed using these funds for DNA tests for Westbrook families still residing in their ancestral seats.

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