The purpose of this blog is to document all sources and collections pertaining to the surname Melrose in the attempt to establish if they do lead back to Melrose, Roxburghshire, Scotland and how many are related to each other.

To that end we have a Melrose-DNA Name Study at WikiTree

We now have the “Melrose DNA Project” up and running at Family Tree DNA, if you even have ONE Melrose or variation in your family tree and have had a DNA test, please consider joining the project.

Note: There is a separate blog on the Town Melrose one-place study run by Viv Marsh, not to be confused with this one.

The creator of this blog is Rhonda Lucas and I also maintain my own website Lucas & Cummins Heritage.
