TheNORWOOD Surname DNA Project is open to men with the surname Norwood or variations like Northwood, Norred, Norrid, for example. Men with another surname who suspect that their direct paternal line descends from a man with the surname Norwood may also participate. Order a y-dna test kit from Family Tree DNA through the Norwood project and submit a pedigree showing your line of descent from your earliest known Norwood ancestor. You may include birth and death dates, wife's name, and locations. The administrator will edit the pedigree for inclusion on the Patriarchs page.


As time goes by and new sources of information are found, we will add links here. If you have a webpage or other sources of information that would be useful for other Norwood researchers, please send the addresses along to Dick Norwood via e-mail.
