No information on this site can be removed, shared or sold without the written permission of the submitter. We expect all members to follow the same guidelines.

We are conducting a Buckner Surname Project. The study is by invitation only to members of the Buckner families and any variation of the Buckner surname. The study's objectives:

Help prove or disprove Buckner genealogies
Locate our Buckner origins

The study is a Y-chromosome DNA surname study. The Y-chromosome only exists in males. It is passed on from fathers to sons virtually unchanged for generations.

To “directly” participate you MUST be (1) male; either (2) carry the Buckner surname or a variation of it (3) descend directly in an unbroken paternal (male-to-male) line from one of these families; (4) submit your [direct proven and documented] Buckner lineage and (5) you MUST be tested. You MUST contribute to the site and share Buckner documention that may help others with their research. Sharing information will also make DNA interpretations easi­er.

We are looking for direct participants and indirect representatives. We hope you will consider joining our study.
