About us

The project was established in 2004 to enable the various lines of Clarkson, Claxton and Clarkston descendents to determine whether or not they share a common ancestor. This knowledge will allow us to work together on our genealogy and scale those brick walls.  To see further Claxton DNA information, including various lines, visit

Several lines have been identified and we are actively seeking European Claxtons, Clarksons and similar suranmes to test.

Initally the project was focused on Y-line DNA only, but more recently with the advent of the Family Finder test, we welcome all Claxton/Clarkson descendants and will group them according to ancestral line.

Very few, if any, group e-mails will be sent through the project. To keep current with genetic genealogy information, please subscribe to the blog, by clicking on the small grey "follow" button on the right side of the page. Not everyone appreciates e-mails from project administrators, and taking a blog approach allows people who are interested to subscribe without bothering those who aren't. so, please, subscribe to keep current.
