DNA Helping to Find Bunting Origins

Channel 4 Television series - THE FACE OF BRITAIN.

This series may help us to find when and where the Buntings came from or perhaps just continued living in Britain. If you qualify to participate in the experiment, follow the instructions below. If you need help with detail about your known tree then e-mail our researcher, Mary Rix, who may be contacted from the "About Us" page listed in the header above. The news of the challenge arose through our membership of the Federation of Family History Societies.

"Imagine if a simple DNA test could show that you're descended from a Viking warrior, a Saxon farmer or Norman invader.  This is what a pioneering project by Oxford University and the Welcome Foundation plan to do for the whole of the UK; and Channel 4 is going to follow the entire process.
This new Channel 4 series is called THE FACE OF BRITAIN and the programme production company Wag TV are currently seeking families who know a lot about their family history but would like to delve even deeper and have their DNA tested to reveal their ancient roots.
To qualify you and at least two generations of your family must come fromone of the following regions:Cornwall, Devon, Pembrokeshire, Oxfordshire, Kent, Sussex, Northumbria,Cumbria, Orkney
If you would be happy to have a simple DNA test and have your family history delved into on television then please contact Wag TV as soon as possible.Email or call Sorrel on: 0207 688 2166."

Buntings of Stockport
Authored by: Michael Bunting FSG on 12:09AM BST - Wednesday, 07 June 2006

Dear Juliana,

I quickly looked through our Members' Interest Booklet and couldn't spot anyone researching in CHS Stockport.

May I suggest you look under our heading at the top of each page "About Us" and send an E-mail to our Record Keeper, Mary Rix, (click on her name) and ask her. It looks as though you might be able to help us begin tracing a line there so why not do as the Webmaster suggests and log in as a user of this site.

Come back to me if you don't get any further with this enquiry.
