About us

This Project is founded on the idea to find out how different Gevert families bind together by Y-DNA results. This should reveal haplogroups that can help to find out how the genealogical father lines have evolved earlier in history. Gevert name in variations has spread out from Central Europe. In Sweden the name is quite common. Lot of people might want to know about their fathers origin. As an example the two families in Finland have different origins even both of them are believed to be descendants of Anders/Andreas Gevert b. ca. 1580. In Flemish giver is gever. In southern dialect it has the form gevert. The name is at least of medieval original. Probably as first name like it exists even now. Then as a patronymic there was an s or z at the end. Later these letters often were left out.
