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.
The goal of the WEINGART, WEINGARTEN and WEINGARTNER DNA Project is to identify the various family lines and possibly find links between them. The project is also open to variant spellings and anglicized versions of these surnames. DNA testing of the male Y-chromosome is the means by which family lines and relationships will be verified in conjunction with any corresponding genealogical documentation.
The geographical locations of where the ancestors of project participants have resided include Germany and the United States of America. German locations include Prussia. Specific German communities include Heilbad Heiligenstadt and Rüdigershagen. American locations include the states of Kentucky, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia.
This DNA Project will:
1. Help researchers work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page)
2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches
