Patriarch Page


Updated: 15 Dec 2010

Please send any queries or pedigrees for this project to: dvelten AT

The purpose of the Velten/Felten Surname DNA Project is to:

1.     Document the various lines of Velten/Felten families (including all other spelling variations) and determine their earliest known ancestor (EKA, the “Patriarch”) and location.

2.     Locate descendants of each family willing to participate in the DNA project, so we can determine any genetic relationships between the lines.

Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page. Those lineages with a participant will have a FTDNA kit number shown in red and may also list a Line Leader (the researcher actively researching the line).
