New Fletcher Surname Group website at: www.familytreedna.com/public/fletcher/ Note: For the link to the original Fletcher Research Bulletin go through www.genealogy.fletcher.net/, or for the original Fletcher Surname Group, website: Go to: www.genealogy.fletcher.net/Major%20Fletcher%20Lines.
Our long-term goal is to identify and group the various progeny of Fletcher immigrants to America by building a DNA database for the Y-chromosome of males with the surname Fletcher. Originally sponsored by the Fletcher Family Research Bulletin, our objectives along the way to that goal will be, among others:

1. To find out if Robert Fletcher of Concord, Massachusetts, really did descend from the Fletchers of Cumberland County, England, as the Cumbrian Pedigrees indicate.
2. To clarify which VA-TN-NC Fletcher lines descend from William Fletcher of Essex Co. VA.
3. To verify descendants of such early Fletcher immigrants as William Fletcher of Accomack Co. VA and John Fletcher of Chester Co. PA.
4. To sort out the tangled Fletcher lines in such locations as the Virginia counties of Lee, Fauquier and Culpepper; the Pennsylvania counties of Adams and Westmoreland; and the Ohio counties of Clermont and Gallia.

Please urge an eligible male in your Fletcher line to participate.
