The Peter Family on Facebook

Peters Surname DNA Project
"PETERS, PETER, PIETER, PIETERS, PEATERS, PEETERS, and any other reasonable spelling variations are welcome to join the project. Only males have Y-chromosomes, so only male PETERS/etc. can participate. If you are female, you can have a male PETERS/etc. relative submit a sample for your line. To participate meaningfully, testees will need to share their direct male line ancestry back to the earliest known PETERS/etc., as a pedigree chart (excluding living persons)."
