Welcome to the Ciarochi DNA Project
Surname Y-DNA testing and "Family Finder Test" are the newest tools available to genealogists! Both types of tests are welcome.
- Surname Y-DNA 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 Family Finder test is designed to trace all of your ancestral lines (5 generations and beyond) using your autosomal DNA (Non Gender DNA passed on to you by both parents) in order to confidently identify relationships for five generations. This is different from mtDNA and Y–chromosome DNA tests, which are intended to clearly trace exclusively the direct maternal or paternal lines.
The following Ciarochi surname variations are all welcome in this project. Any Ciarochi DNA will be helpful to fill out Lineages, Prove/disprove Lineages or link lost family Branches in the Y-DNA Project.
Known spelling variations in this line are:
Ciarrocchi, Ciarocchi, Ciarrochi, Ciarochi
The earliest known ancestor of our only member was born in Campofilone, Italy. He was a stone mason there who immigrated to the United States in 1901. He settled in Uniontown, PA where it is believed that some family members were already living.
