  • Notes 
    • === THOMAS GARNER

      Need a documented male member of the Gardiner family of Charles and St. Mary's County Maryland to agree to a Y series DNA test from ancestry.com. Which I am willing to pay for.

      Subject, prior to taking this DNA tests must provide documented history as to the relationship to this family.

      Male progenitor of this Gardiner family was Richard Gardiner and his son Luke Gardiner.

      This is to provide definite proof that myself and several other individuals who DNA has been tested are truly related to this family. Based upon cold searches of Southern Maryland I note what appears to be numerous male individuals related to that family.

      Any assistance would be appreciated, DNA shows on the X chromosome a relationship to the Gardiner and Boarman family in Southern Maryland.
