As I have the name Cruse in my ancestry I find your information very interesting. Thank you.

Debbie Kennett said...

Thank you. Which Cruse line are you researching. Do get in touch by e-mail. I might be able to give you more information.

Thank you for doing so much research for those of us with the Cruse name. I am the youngest of 4 girls with the last name and I am 66! My father passed away several years ago - therefore I cannot get DNA testing from a male participant. I live in the USA and there are few Cruse family members that I am aware of in this part of the world - no cousins. How do I get specific information to trace my family (Scots/Irish)?

Kathy,

Thanks for getting in touch. As a female you can take the Family Finder test through the Cruwys DNA Project. This will give you matches with genetic cousins on all your family lines. We have a few people in the project with Cruse/Crews ancestry who've now taken this test. It's now very cheap too costing just $99. You can find the project website here:

You can read my blog post about the Family Finder test here:

Can you perhaps e-mail me with outline details of your Cruse tree so that I can have a copy for my records? I will then also be able to see if you connect with any of the other lines for which I have information.
