The Hoskins DNA Project Website

The Hoskins DNA Project is for all who wish to work together to find their common heritage through DNA testing and sharing of information. All variant spellings are welcome. 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.

Surnames In This Project

Haskin, Haskins, Hodgkins, Hodgkinson, Hoskin, Hoskins, Hoskinson, Hoskyns

Hoskins: English: from the Middle English personal name Osekin, a pet form of the various personal names with an Old English first element os ‘god’ . Compare, for example, Osborn, Osgood, and Osmond, or its Old Norse cognate ás. For the inorganic initial H-, compare Herrick. The addition in English of an inorganic H- to names beginning with a vowel is a relatively common phenomenon.

This Family Project is started to:

1. Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page)

2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches
