I have set up a discussion on this free offer in the PEARSE group and included a link to the 'Pierce DNA Project USA & UK' site which carries the free DNA testing offer.
I took up the offer myself and so had a test to the 25 marker level which revealed matches with members of two families in Ireland, both with different surnames so our link must be way back.
I shall be interested to know whether any other Pearses wish to take up the offer.
I am looking for information relating to the Pearse family resident in the Plymouth area of Devon UK from 1600 on & later elsewhere. We have traced our links back to Francis Pearse (b abt 1580, died 1645 in Ermington) but need further info to fully authenticate these earliest links
