About us

Participation in this project is open to anyone anywhere in the world with Hamilton/Hambleton ties. The goals of the project include, among others: (a) help participants solve longstanding genealogical problems and find new relationships with other Hamilton lines, (b) determine which particular Hamilton lines are closely related and which are not, (c) determine which lines are derived from the aristocratic Hamilton line that began with Walter Fitzgilbert around 1300 in Scotland, (d) determine which lines are related to famous Hamiltons, such as the USA founding father, Alexander Hamilton.

This Family Tree DNA web site has basic information about the project and the results obtained. A more detailed description of the project is given at
