"ADAN, ADEN. These surnames, recorded in the Aberdeen Directory, are derived from the name of the old lands and barony of Auden or Aden in Aberdeenshire (? the Aldin Alenn of the Book of Deer). Andrew Aden, weaver in the Spittal bounds of Aberdeen, is in record in 1683 and 1695 (ROA., i, p. 240, 245). "(The surnames of Scotland. George Fraser Black, 1866-1948)


Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Aden ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!
