About us

The goal of this surname project is to determine the genetic genealogy markers and branch tags for the various male lines in order to provide a new tool to distinguish between the various CHRISTMAN, CHRISTMANN, and CRESSMAN ancestral lines worldwide to aide your traditional genealogical research. Any reasonable spelling variant can be included. Please feel free to suggest a variant you feel I may have missed. You can also add your basic Pedigree Chart information linked to your personal record in the FTDNA database using your personal account page and the GEDCOM tab therein.
