Nova Scotia Bound[From "Men of the Soil, Century Farms", Published by the NS Rural Beautification Committee, pg. 109. Hants County--James ROSE--Urbania, Hants Co., NS. In 1776, Donald ROSE and his two sons, James and Angus, left their Scottish home for an adventure across the Atlantic. When they arrived in Nova Scotia, Donald took out a grant of 2000 acres of crown land on the shore of the Shubenacadie River, at a bend in the river flowing toward the Bay of Fundy. This was the beginning of the small community of Urbania where this farm is situated. When Donald's two sons grew up, he divided his land between them. He gave James A. 1000 acres,including the old homestead. In time James married, and he and his wife had a family-the homestead portion of James' 1000 acres has been handed down 5 generations. In the beginning, it was handed down from Donald ROSE to son, James ROSE, to son, Ebenezer ROSE, to his son, George ROSE, to his son, James ROSE, to his son, James Frederick ROSE. Donald ROSE and his wife, Ann were buried near their house.] Donald Rose & Ann FRASER had children: -Angus ROSE b. 1768 SCT., d. NS -James D. ROSE b. 1770 Nairn, SCT, d. 13 Aug. 1854 NS., bd.

I was asked to take part in DNA testing by a group of Rose's who are trying to sort out there family roots. The results are in, I am a genuine Rose of Scottish descent.
Following from: Kathleen Rose and David W. Brown, Project Managers, Rose DNA Reconstruction Project:
The Rose DNA Project began 2nd October 2001 with a group of genealogist who have been researching Samuel Rose of Dutchess Co. New York and Manchester VT for several years. Over the last few years many of us began to question the assumed attitude that Samuel was of English descent because as we reviewed the documentation and evidence amassed by several individuals over a 80 year period we began to realize the his more probable ancestry came through the Dutch who had settled across the Hudson River in Ulster Co. NY. Many of these immigrants, once they became established in Ulster petitioned for land across the river in Dutchess Co. The paper trail was and has been a dead end for many years so when this new technology came along we decided to end fruitless hours of researching false lines by using a set of DNA test.
Because there are many individuals of English descent in Manchester among Samuels neighbors and acquaintances we looked to Robert Rose of Ipswich, England and Brandford CT for a test subject and found an individual willing to help us who had a well documented pedigree. We were likewise able to find a descendant of the Dutch immigrant, Aldert Heymanse Roosa who we felt was the line Samuel more likely came from. Also, because the Rose's who dsecend from Hugh of Scotland are the most numerous Rose line in the US we felt it would be wise to include a sample from a substantiated descendant from him also.
Samuel Rose had 5 sons and our group consisted of descendants of 3 of them and two others of questionable descent. We chose to do a twelve marker test, because if it came back that Samuel was of Dutch descent we have a baptismal record that we were pretty sure was his and if not we were no closer on the English side because there are so many Samuels in that family that it may never be straightened out in our lifetime. Much to our pleasure 2 of the 3 son's matched the Dutch immigrant 100% on the 12 Alleles. The 3rd matched at 99.2 % and the two questionable individuals matched two of the sons and the immigrant at 100%. The English Robert Rose matched our group at only 25% or less and Hugh Rose of Scotland matched a bit better at slightly over 50%. With those kinds of odds it was pretty clear who were the ancestors of our Samuel.
In order to contact the Robert Rose of CT and Hugh Rose of Scotland descendants we applied to Christine Rose of the Rose Family Association and she was able to help us.
My DNA test confirms that I am a Rose relative of Christine Rose's, mentioned above, husband Seymour Rose. Further testing of 25 markers rather than the standard 12 is in progress to further confirm the relationship.
The organizers of this Rose DNA testing have received special monetary rates. To find out more visit and Click on "Rose Family DNA Project" on the left.
The DNA testing is being carried out through Family Tree DNA located in Houston, Texas. Lots of information and they have a surname searchable data base at their internet web site of the surnames that have been tested.
Testing is easy, 2 mouth swabs are placed in a solution and mailed to the lab. All necessary supplies are included in the test kit.
A promising new Genealogy research tool.
We encourage all male Rose's to take part in this DNA testing.
