  1. I am a Prouse/Prowse genealogist. I’ve been researching the family for nearly 50 years. I am attempting to find a common connection of Prouse/Prowse families in America since George Prouse arrived in Jamestown, VA in 1619 on the Diana.

    I recently had a yDNA test done and found some interesting results which may be markers to link the Prouse/Prowse families. If any of the Prowse males of the Kentucky branch have had their yDNA test done through FamilyTreeDNA, I would like to share our results.

    I hope there are some interested Kentucky Prowses who would like to find out more about our amazing family.
