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.

See the Familton Surname DNA Project Diary (Blog), and additional information on the DNA Surnames pages.

Earliest known ancestors so far identified, with their Line Leader (Researcher)
└── indicates unproven relationship  
?? against a name or place show (hopefully educated) guesses
The pedigrees  represented here under the heading "Other" are mostly those where little or no online tree or existing research        can be found, so unless an established researcher has shared their pedigree, it isn't yet shown on these pages.  All welcome.
