TINDALL -  My great grandfather was Samuel Priestly Tindall.  He was born in 1843 in Sumter District.  I find Samuel Priestly Broadway and wife, Anna M. Tindal from Clarendon.  I can't help but think there must be some connection here.  Priestly is not that common for a name.  The Tindal(l) name is used interchangeably within the same family sometimes.  There are Tindals in the Sumter area who are distantly related to me.  Can you offer any help in this puzzle?
 Thanks for any help. July 1, 2004

DUKE / DUKES - A Duke and Dukes yDNA surname study is underway to help  Duke and Dukes family researchers deal with brick walls in their research, eliminate false connections, and establish patterns of branching within families. The study uses simple scrapings from the cheek of males (only males have yDNA) who have the Duke or Dukes surname (men with other surnames would ordinarily have some other yDNA line). So far twelve genetically distinct and presumably unrelated Duke  and Dukes families have been identified, of which at least six were in   South Carolina at one time or another. However, no Duke or Dukes from  Clarendon or Williamsburg counties, both of them known to have families of these names, has been tested. We encourage eligible men to sign up
and help both their own understanding of their family history and the overall reconstruction of the history of Duke and Dukes families. The  results to date of the Duke study are posted at:

To sign up for the study, go to:

and select "Surname Projects" from the central column, and then select the Duke study from the column at the left. The Family Tree DNA website also has a great deal of explanatory information about yDNA studies. A simple 12-marker test is usually sufficient to eliminate the wrong family lines, while greater numbers of markers are useful in  reconstructing the history of each broadly-defined family.
