This is a location specific DNA project and is open to all who have an ancestor that lived in Rehoboth, Massachusetts
prior to 1750
. Most Rehoboth families intermarried heavily so the idea behind this project is to share genealogy information about Early Rehoboth Families and see what residual DNA connections there may be. There is no guarantee that there will be any after 200+ years. So this is really an experiment. It may also be interesting from a mtDNA and Y-DNA aspect. Again quite experimental.
However, Rehoboth is a bit unusual in that the original town center (now located in Rumford, Rhode Island) is not where Rehoboth is located today AND Rehoboth has for many hundreds of years survived with a very scattered, rural population. The names of the original Proprietors are still in evidence today. The insular and rural nature of the area may provide for more concentrated evidence of shared ancestry than would be typical of many New England small towns.
Please let me know if I have missed a surname.
When you join it is helpful to send a list of Rehoboth Families to me.
I would appreciate if you send the various lineages in abbreviated form ie :
William 1 ALLEN, Benjamin 2, Jeremiah 3, Benjamin 4
Henry 1 BUTTERWORTH, John 2, Patience 3
In this case William ALLEN and Henry BUTTERWORTH are the immigrants (generation 1) Benjamin is William's son, Jeremiah his grandson and so forth. End each listing when the family moved out of Rehoboth or with the daughter.
Please contact the Administrator with your questions or to add names.
