THURMAN and Variations DNA Project- Background
Therman, Thierman, Thirman, Thoroman, Thoroughman, Thurman, Thurmann, Thurmer, Thurmon, Thurmond, Tureman, Turman
The Thurman & Variations DNA Project welcomes any and all Th?r*m?n* participants interested in genetic testing for genealogic research. We also encourage those who have tested at other labs to transfer their results to FTDNA to facilitate the collaboration and connection only possible through a surname project.
The Thurman's Quest website is a repository of all derivatives of the THURMAN surname founded by Loren Thurman and continued by the collaborative efforts of Thurmans everywhere! Over 20 years of research and amassing data have resulted in over 15,500 THURMANS (et al). Additions, documented corrections, and questions are always welcome.
Initially it was suspected that just a handful of original ancestors (immigrants) established the known Thurman families in America. Thanks to our Y-DNA study we have now determined that there are several distinct unrelated groups of Thurmans but also that some Thurmonds and Thurmons are closely related to Thurmans. We are inspired and challenged by the DNA results to reexamine our speculations and to keep researching.
As part of a surname project (as opposed to independent DNA testing) you benefit from FTDNA group discounts as well as detailed genealogically significant analysis of your results.
