This project was undertaken to assist in the confirmation and collection of the different family lines which include Harrelson, Harralson, Harrilson, Haralson, Harrellson, Haroldson, and Harraldson surnames and to hopefully determine county of origin for these lines. This project is open to all who are interested in working together to find their common heritage through sharing of information and DNA testing. All variant spellings are welcome. If your Surname is missing, we'll be glad to add it. The primary questions and hopes of this Project at present are: 1. How many different lines are represented? 2. How are specific ancestors related to other family lines within this project? 3. Extending our Project to ancestral country by hopefully locating genetic cousins World Wide ATTENTION: All participants of the National Geographic Genographic DNA Project who are descended on a direct paternal or maternal line from Harrelsons or variant spelling are welcome to join the Harrelsons DNA Project!
