About us

The Adamthwaite DNA Project is an integral part of the Adamthwaite One-Name Study, registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies

If you are male, and are descended through the paternal line from an Adamthwaite, we hope you will join our Project!

Our DNA project has already uncovered many clues about how the different Adamthwaite lines originated and the links between these lines.

Our website gives details of the nine Adamthwaite family branches identified so far - and our mailing list has members of each of these nine lines who now live in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Please visit our website the Adamthwaite Archive

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Adamthwaite or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

The Y DNA test results contain no personal information, and you will match or be a close match to those to whom you are related. This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry.

NEW!! We have now set up a FAMILY FINDER section in our DNA Project. This is open to anyone (male or female) with ADAMTHWAITE's in their direct ancestral line who wishes to take a Family Finder test.
