Important side note: Over 80% of the Dares in America are not descended from a Dyer Family Line, as some people once thought before DNA tests of Dyers and Dare were compared! They are radically different. So the Dyers are not our ancestors.
If you have male Dare DNA results and you match, please let us know?
