We now have Steve’s DNA test back from the lab. His results are a close match to those already received from the Thomas, John, William and Samuel branches of the family.

We are pleased to announce we have our 9th member of the Willingale DNA Project. Steve Willingale from Australia is our latest tester and we hope to have his DNA results back early in the New Year.

We are expecting the DNA results of another […]
