We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for the Spearman 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.

Hi there

My great grandmother was a Spierin and I believe that the name may have been corrupted somewhere along the line to Spearman (as well as a plethora of other possible variants, from Spering to Speiran to Spearing). My pedigree is below (my own line and all the males in related lines who survived to adulthood). She was not on my maternal DNA line but I have traced all the living Spierins in Dublin and they all descend from my g-g-g grandfather Patrick Spierin, who probably came from Limerick. The Limerick Spierins in turn were probably related to the Speringe’s of London (1633 Visitation) and they are reputed to have come from Germany. I am in contact with distant cousins who are part of the direct paternal line (and I will ask them if they would be interested in participating). Anyway, please feel free to check out Maurice Gleeson's family tree at (but remember to click on the Dublin Spierin’s tree in the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the tree view).

Ciao, Maurice (Gleeson junior)
