Clark(e) lines

    (Last updated 18 Jul. 2015)

By correlating test results and paternal pedigrees, project members can identify their genetic heritage and related families.   Click here to find out how to use the Patriarchs Page or how to contact a pedigree provider.

Send your pedigrees for this surname by email to the Project Administrator.  Click the link "Pedigrees" above for instructions.

We list here paternal lines for all Clark(e)s who wish them listed, denoting Earliest Known Ancestor and Line Leader. We hope that eventually all our tested members will have paternal lines listed here. We also encourage other Clark(e)s who believe themselves descended from ancestors listed on this page, (and all Clark(e)s who meet our project criteria), to join this DNA surname project.

We use kit number for ID number. If a person was tested by a company other than FTDNA we will instead use ySearch number in parentheses, if possible.
