The Whitehead/Whitted/Whited Surname DNA Project

The Whitehead/Whitted/Whited Surname Project was originally created by David Whitehead in November of 2003 on FamilyTreeDNA.

It was created  with the following goals:

  • Assist project members in their genealogical research and to work together to find their common heritage  (See the Patriarch Page)
  • To establish possible links between the various Whitehead, Whitted and Whited families by identifying the DNA of the ancestor families and organizing them into distinct genetic lineages.

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.

There are many useful links on our Misc. page
