DNA project asks 'how Manx are you?'

A DNA research project looking at people from the Isle of Man says it's still hoping to track down people with Manx surnames.

The Manx Y-DNA project is analysing the genetic makeup of people from the Island to find out how much Viking, Irish and Scottish ancestry they have.

It's been running for eight years and has traced the DNA from 94 genetic families so far.

But organisers say they're now hoping families with names such as Corkish, Cregeen, Moughtin and Skelly will come forward to be tested.
