Lamason, Lambson, Lambton, Lamison, Lampson, Lampton, Lamson
Welcome to the Lamson Lampson Lambson DNA Project
and Roger Lamson
are your Administrators. Emily and Roger have been gathering Lamson data for over nearly 40 years. They have found many major family groups with the Lamson surname, but no records, as yet, have been located to connect these families. With the hopes that DNA testing will assist in crumbling our brick walls, we are excited to be your administrators for this project, and urge you to join us in solving our surname dilemma.
As only the males with the surname of Lamson (and variant spellings) can be tested, please consider volunteering or if you aren't male and/or don't carry the surname, assist in locating possible candidates to test.
Each of you who can't test could also consider contributing financially to those who can. There is some funding to assist. I recommend that anyone wishing to test to consider a 37 marker as this provides a more accurate match. In order to find DNA matches, a tester needs to allow his DNA to be available to the public. If you select to have your results made public, please post your results to http://www.ysearch.org
to allow for matches with other testing companies. Do check Ysearch as some people have tested with other companies and you will find other Lamson lines there.
Emily has started a Lamson DNA email list
that disseminates information on the lineages being tested and on various DNA topics as they relate to genealogy. You do not have to be a volunteer for testing to be a part of the Lamson DNA email list. Any Lamson researcher is welcome. Email me, if you would like to be included in this e-list.
The success of this website will depend upon contributions of other Lamson, Lambson, Lampson, etc. researchers both with participation in the DNA Project and in providing source documentation and family records to assist everyone in understanding the lineage of the various DNA groups posted to this site.
As our group grows, there will be a need to revamp this website to assist its members. Send your ideas for this website, as well as any lineage you would like posted to the group email list, directly to Emily or Roger.
In the least, we would like to post the ancestors in brief form for those who are testing. We do wish to respect everyone's privacy, so please to not expect any dates and locations for living persons to be added to this site or the email list. It is also imperative that we post genealogical data that has GOOD documentation to minimize errors. If you share data that is speculative, please clearly state so. Again, welcome to the group.
We hope you enjoy your visit and that you will be the one to provide that missing link we all need! If you have question, email us at the addresses listed at the top.
