The Dalton International DNA Project (DIDP) was established by the Dalton Genealogical Society(DGS) in May 2003. Now, with 188 participants, it is one of the largest and most respected DNA single surname studies worldwide. At the end of 2005, the Society appointed Chris Pomery, an authority on genetic genealogy, as consultant to the project, to advise on interpretation of results and lines for future research.

In October 2006 a preliminary presentation of the project findings was made at the DGS Annual Gathering in Hampton, New Hampshire, USA. In July 2007, Chris spoke at the DGS Gathering in Worcester, UK and his DIDP Progress Report in December 2007 provided a state of the art analysis of the DNA results of 99 testees in the project at that time. This included some testees in the Dalton America and other projects, whose DNA results matched testees in DIDP.
Since that time, we have substantially increased the number of Y-DNA testees in our database to 181 members worldwide. Chris Pomery presented updated information at our 2011 Gathering in Salt Lake City, Utah. The most recent edition of the DIDP Progress Report was published in November 2013. The report is available to all DIDP project members who are also Dalton Genealogical Society members in good standing.

We want to thank Chris Pomery for the superb work that he has done in preparing these reports for us. They are truly excellent pieces of work and set a formidable standard for all those engaged in one name Y-DNA studies. We are indeed fortunate to have Chris as our consultant and his ongoing services are available to us through the coming year.
