The Dawe project would like to:

  • list as many Families, by Earliest Ancestor and Line Leader (researcher) as we can identify.
  • locate descendants of each family and arrange their participation in the DNA project

Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but those families with a man representing them in the DNA Project will be identified.
Please read the Notes on Pedigrees below before submitting your pedigree.

You may also be interested in the Dawe Surname DNA Project Diary (Blog) and additional Dawe information at DNASurnames.

Participants wanted for all trees, either as initial or confirming representative.

On this page:

Earliest known ancestors so far identified, with their Line Leader (Researcher)
All welcome.
