Patriarch Page


By correlating test results and paternal pedigrees, project members can identify their genetic heritage and related families.   Click here to find out how to use the Patriarchs Page or how to contact a pedigree provider.

Send your pedigrees for this surname by email to the Project Administrator.  Click the link "Pedigrees" above for instructions.

We will list all Families, by Earliest Ancestor and Line Leader (Researcher) 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.)

Please note that a pedigree includes little if any marriage information, death information, or details on the wife.  It is intended to allow a researcher to identify a family of interest.  It is NOT intended to provide all of the information that is known on this family.  Often, something special is listed on the first generation, as usually little is known about him.

Take a look at the Hodges Family Project to see how projects can be developed with sharing and joint effort.
