Surname tests allow genealogists to verify their father's father's...father's paternal ancestry.
Surname DNA information can be very powerful when combined with traditional paper trails.
The following Surnames are currently included in this project:
Haworth, Howarth, Howorth, Heyworth, Hayworth, Herwarth
The Haworth DNA Project is open to all Haworths, of all spelling variations and from all locations.
- Help researchers from families with our surname and others with matched yDNA work together to find their shared ancestry
- Identify how participants' families are connected, both genetically and through paper trails
- Identify and confirm genetic lineages of ancestral families
- Work with non-DNA based researchers and one name groups with the ultimate aspiration of cataloguing the pedigrees and genetic connections of all of known branches of the Haworth family
Participating in a Surname DNA Project provides:
The participant's genetic DNA, which is very close (and sometimes identical) to his earliest known ancestor.
The participant's "deep" ancestry (Haplogroup), which identifies the paternal ancestor's prehistoric origins.
A sense of camaraderie, which is particularly strong for those who share a genetic ancestry
Stimulation to family research and renewed sharing of information
A wider sense of identity and relationship, as we begin to realize how much we are a World Family.
A chance to compare your genetic ancestry with those of your Surname and the spelling variations
Your genetic matches who do not share your common surname
The knowledge to understand our ancestors better - particularly where the records have been lost
