The aim of the project is to use Y-DNA testing to identify which families bearing ‘Spear’ surnames such as Frame, Freame, Fremault and similar variants are genetically related to one another on the direct paternal line. We do this by testing the Y-chromosome which, like a surname, passes from father to son virtually unchanged down through the generations.
If you are a Frame, no doubt you have heard stories such as:
* The Frames were ‘Weavers from Flanders or
* They fled religious persecution or
* All Frames are related etc…
We explore all of these and more at the website:

If you are a Frame, Freame or Fremault male, or have a variant surname, and you wish to discuss joining the FRAME DNA PROJECT with an administrator,
