Sanford DNA Study
Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way.
There has been at least one paternal Sanford dead end solved using Y-DNA.
There are early Sanford clusters in Florida, Alabama, Virginia, Connecticut, and other locations in the US. Using Y-DNA can help to connect the dots
This Family Project is started to:
1. Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page)
2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches
