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 list families by Earliest Known Ancestor (EKA) and pedigree submitter. The entries are grouped by last names of the EKAs. At present only Polk and Pollock entries have been submitted. Hopefully Pogue, Poage and other variants will be added. Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but lineages corresponding to entries on the results page are indicated by their ID number in the form P-xx
