Our DNA Competition runs until 15th June. The good news is that I have been able to upgrade the tests to Y-67 – worth over £215 each, so not only a wonderful prize, but also more accurate than a Y-37 test. You do not need to be a member of OFHS to enter.

If you are a male with strong Oxfordshire ancestry on your pure male line (father’s father’s father’s… – your surname line)  or a woman who can persuade a brother/male cousin/father to take the test, then please enter our competition.

Write a few paragraph’s on your Oxfordshire ancestry on your male line; describe why a test would be useful to you and provide all your contact details. Send to

  1. This is so exciting! Sending my info in as soon as I can. Thanks very much for this competition.

  2. My PEARCE line comes from Sydenham, with connections to many other Oxfordshire families in the Thame region and also Buckinghamshire. It would be nice to find how strong the genetic connections are in this locale

    • That’s interesting, Donald. My Lenthall relatives are from Great Haseley, Little Hasely and Latchford, near Thame. Looking forward to linking them with all their relatives in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire! They lived for a time in Great Missenden, Bucks.

    • Donald,

      Do send us through a short summary of your Pearce line to and we can put you on our list of contacts to cross-check details when we get to the Pearce name.


  3. DAVIS, my great-great-grandfather, flourished in Radley during the 1860s, and most likely his forefathers before him.

    • Ben, if you give us a bit more detail on your DAVIS family that would be great and we could add you to the surname project as someone with knowledge of a specific surname. Names, dates, places are useful and what you know about any of your GG-grandfather’s ancestors. Send details to
