Surname/tag: Sarsfield Homecoming, Wild Geese
The goal of this project is to identify the DNA of Patrick Sarsfield, 1st Earl of Lucan, who was killed at the Battle of Leyden and is buried in Huy in Belgium.
We have tested one male Sarsfield descended from the Kilmallock, Co. Cork. We would like to identify other male Sarsfield descendants to test for the purposes of triangulation.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
Identify surviving branches of Sarsfields Identify male Sarsfield to test for the purpose of triangulation Identify the terminal SNP of surviving Sarsfield Facilitate comparison of DNA of surviving Sarsfield with that of Patrick Sarsfield, 1st Earl of Lucan
