About us

Welcome to the Horsman / Horseman / Horsaman DNA Project.

Our project is over four years old, and its aim is to try and find out which Hors(e)man families are related.

The surnames Horsman / Horseman / Horsaman are being researched as a One-Name study. To learn more about this study and the associated family trees please contact the Group Administrator at: Horsman@one-name.org

The Horsman / Horseman /Horsaman families are extensive in Yorkshire, England, although there are other branches throughout the UK and overseas. We are trying to see if there is a link between the various family groups.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Horsman or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to get a male in your family to participate.

Ideally you should order a Y DNA test for 37 markers, although, if you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
