About us

Following on from my one-name study, my specific goal is to see if I can find 2 matches from each of the 8 major Brewerton trees. I would like to know whether these trees are connected or not. I would then like to have tests from smaller family groups to see if they connect. I would also like to test any Bruertons to see if they connect to the Brewerton name.

I am also interested in men with different surnames but with close matches at the Y-67 level.
If you are a close match then please test for the snp R-PF-7589

General goals are:
  • Discover information to help with our family history research
  • Discover which family trees are related
  • Discover information which may solve research problems, and/or resolve brick walls
  • Sort out multiple families found in the same location
  • Confirm or get clues regarding migrations
  • Confirm suspected events, such as illegitimacy and adoption
  • Find any mistaken connections in family trees
  • Validate family history research
  • Bridge gaps in the paper records
  • Confirm surname variants or find previously unknown variants
  • Discover information to define the major branches of the tree going back to the origin of the surname
  • Discover information about the evolution of the surname
  • Discover clues regarding the origin of the surname
  • Combine results with research in early records to determine the number of points of origin for the surname
  • Preserve DNA results for future research, to protect against any male line becoming extinct
  • Discover information about our distant origins
