Newsflash: Genealogy DNA Testing
I have started looking at Y-DNA of the Easterbrook name to trace the origins back further than is possible with the existing written records (10+ generations). If you are interested in taking part in this interesting research project then take a look at the Easterbrook DNA Project. You will need to have an unbroken male Easterbrook line for Y-DNA testing and initially I am mostly looking for those who can trace their roots back to the Holne and Buckfastleigh areas of Dartmoor and in particular any males decended from
. Alternativily if your ancestors are from Devon but are not direct male descendants of an Easterbrook you may be interested in the more general Devon DNA Project.
Easterbrook Name examines the Easterbrook name, its variants, and lists all the families for which I have information. These families are then examined in further detail organised geographically: Devon, the rest of the West Country, the South East including London, and the rest of the British Isles, representing the distribution of the Easterbrook families as they migrated away from origins in Devon.
Rest of World covers the Easterbrook families that have left the British Isles for a life in the New World as well as those who were born British Subjects or lived abroad including serving members of the British Armed Forces.
Some families related to an Easterbrook by marriage are covered in the Other Surnames section.
The Ancestor section is a collection of Ancestor Trees for families that are being researched.
Resources is the background genealogy information to my research including a contact page to contact the genealogists working on families on this site.

Confidentiality and Privacy
The family trees on these pages are intentionally incomplete into the 20th century. To comply with various privacy laws, including the EU and UK Data Protection Laws, certain information relating to living individuals is excluded or obscured. As a general guide, information concerning living individuals already in the public domain may be shown but that obtained privately is not.
You are probably here because you are tracing your family history. The authors and researchers that contribute to this site assume that you are aware that genealogy is an activity that may reveal things about your family that are shocking, unexpected, embarrassing, or you would rather you hadn't found out, and therefore take no responsibility for any unpleasant facts you discover here. Almost everyone tracing their family tree will experience strong emotions with some of the facts he or she uncovers and almost every family has its skeletons so don't expect your family to be any different. If you are in any doubt, do not continue further into this site.
Some terminology and behaviours in common use in the past are now considered offensive, insensitive, or politically incorrect. When describing historical events or transcribing documents I have not attempted to convert to 21st century norms. Where a place has changed name over time, I have used the name in use at the time of the event. There is no intent to offend, just to be historically factual and correct.
