We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for the Bowers Family Project Patriarch page. (You don’t have to be a test participant to post your family pedigree.)  

There are two ways to make your pedigree available to the project administrator for posting on the Patriarch Page:
1.  Send the pedigree by email directly to in the simplified form described below  (If you send it this way, your pedigree will only be posted on the Patriarch Page, and will not be included in the Pedigree Forum)
Be sure to include
mail address you wish to be posted with the pedigree
                 Kit number of the project participant whose pedigree this is
ame, birthdate, birthplace, spouse for each generation (direct  male line).

2.  Log-in to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum.  By posting your pedigree on the forum, you are making it available for the Project Administrator to post it on the Patriarch Page, along with your contact information, and kit number (or code identity number).

  1. You must be logged in to post on this forum.
    How do I register to post a pedigree?
    I've already registered. How do I log in?

  2.  Please include your Kit number or Code Identity number if you have been tested for the project.

  3. Please read the following instructions, then scroll down to the last posting on this forum and click "reply" in order to post your pedigree.

  4. The pedigree for a Surname Project follows your paternal line.  Please post only the information for each generation:

Full Name of Earliest Known Male Ancestor for this Surname
His birthdate
Spouse’s name

(If you are missing any piece of this information, post another bit of identifying information) 

Suggestions for Posting your Pedigree on this forum:

o        Post four pieces of information for each ancestor

o        Begin with the earliest generation

o        Use standard abbreviations:  m=married, b=born, d=died, c=circa, Co=county, VA=Virginia, GA=Georgia, etc

o        Try to keep to one line per generation

o        Include only generations that have this family surname

o        Provide your name and email address as the pedigree provider

o        Provide the kit number and/or project code identity number if pedigree is for a tested participant

o        Use surname with each generation

o        Don’t use all caps

o        Don’t include anyone whose birthdate is after 1910, for privacy concerns.

o        Don’t number the generations 

Scroll down to the last posting on this forum and click "reply". Post your pedigree in the box provided, and click "Post".    

If you do not see a"reply" tab, it means you have lost your log in and will need to log in again in order to post. Go back to the project home page, log in again, and return to the pedigree forum. Login should hold the second time.

I`ve just started my research on my Bowers Family History.
Maybe these names and dates will contact me with another
in my line of Bowers. I only wish that this would happen.
Michael Bowers(myself)
Robert Bowers
Charles Franklin Bowers
Elmer E. Bowers-Born-1862-East Lampeter, Lancaster,PA.
Christain Bowers-Born-1833-East Lampeter,Lancaster,PA.
This is where i`ve gotten.Christain`s Father (I think) is
John Bowers-Born-1800-Lancaster Pa.
John`s Father (I think) was Born in England,and Mother
in Baden(which i have no idea where this is.)
Maybe this info. may create some other interests.

John`s Father (I think) was Born in England,and Mother
in Baden(which i have no idea where this is.)
Baden, at the time, was a soveriegn country, a part of the German Confederation of nations.? Today, it is a province in southwestern Germany, just west of Bavaria and Wurtemberg.? Baden is best known as being the location of the Black Forest.

If you came up with a name for this woman, it is possible to search Emigration records:

Hi, Lesley.  Thanks for the pedigree.  We won't post it on the Patriarch page since the birthdates are too recent to maintain privacy.  I hope you will consider joining a DNA project to further your Bowers research, if you haven't already done so.

Lem, Larry & Donna - I posted each of your pedigrees on the Patriarch page just now.  As I put all of the info you provided, I didn't make a link back to this site.   I hope that each of you gain from this participation and that you are able to join the Bowers DNA Project.

Larry - I merged your pedigree with Sue's and put each of you on the line where you branch.  If the two of you can agree who is the right person to list on the Giles lien, we can add that.  It's probably worth your joining the project and confirming the dna back to Philemon with a 25 marker test of your own.

best regards,  Terry
