Morris -- The SC-NC-MD Morris Families DNA Site

We will list all Families, by Earliest Ancestor and Line Leader who wish to be listed.  We hope that eventually, all families will be listed on this page.   We also hope to eventually locate descendants of each family and to arrange their participation in the DNA project. 
(Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but we will indicate families who have a man representing them in the DNA Project.)


Note by Mike Terry: I can only list pedigrees and results in this DNA project for individuals who request to join the Terry DNA project and submit a pedigree for listing. 

Please also see Third Family Group  and Seventh Family Group in the Morris DNA Project.
