Gleason/Gleeson/Glezen/Glisson/Glysson - update 10/15/2015

As of September 2012, participation in the Gleason Family DNA Project is now a requirement for pedigree listing on this page. Family members who have been Y-DNA tested are indicated by their ID code in red at the end of their line. When multiple wives are shown, the plus sign (+) after the name of a wife identifies her as the mother of the continuing lineage. The contact person for each family is given on the first line in black. Siblings of the direct line males are no longer shown. An archived version of the original Gleason Patriarch Page, which included some siblings and several nonmembers, is available at:
