Loveless and Lovelace DNA Project

This project is for all males with surname Lovelace or Loveless or one of its variants. It is not location specific. All are welcome to join.

Many of us doing Loveless/Lovelace research have hit brick walls in the 1700s. We are hoping that through DNA testing, we can find some connections between currently orphaned Loveless and Lovelace ancestors and our known lines. We're also hoping to get closer to proving some of our suppositions about which Loveless and Lovelace families are closely related.
