Male Lannin Ancestors

The Lannin Project


In spring 2012, Christopher Tunstall, great-grandson of Joseph John Lannin (April 23, 1866 - 15 May 1928) retraced his great-grandfather's steps when he walked from Lac Beauport, Quebec to Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 14 in 1880. Joseph would later become owner of The Boston Red Sox from 1913-1916, bringing Babe Ruth from Baltimore. His team won two World Series during his ownership.

Order DNA Tests

Join The Lannin DNA Project and order Y-DNA testing through the project at Family Tree DNA. Y-DNA tests are offered in 12, 25, 37, 67 and 111 marker levels.
For adequate comparison purposes, The Lannin DNA Project highly recommends testing at a minimum of 37 markers. However if you are just getting started and are willing to upgrade your testing level over time, the 12 or 25 marker levels are good starting points.
Additional Tests are available, including mtDNA (maternal line) and Family Finder (atDNA). These tests are available in various degrees of detail.
It should be noted that if you have already taken The Genographic Project Project's Geno 2.0 test, your results can be easily transferred into the Family Tree DNA database. The Family Tree DNA laboratories perform the analysis on Geno 2.0 testing samples.
