About us

Connecting all scattered Huntsman, Hunteman and Huntman families who share common paternal-line ancestors. The project hopes to discover the ancient ethnic and geographic origin of each Huntsman (and variant spellings) family line. The "single founder" hypothesis will also be tested. This project is open to all male Huntsmans (and variant spellings). Women who are interested in these questions should encourage their Huntsman father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, or a male Huntsman cousin to join the project. For testing, we strongly recommend choosing the 67-marker Y-STR test ("Y-67") for good resolution in finding matches. Later, tests of specific SNPs (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) might be recommended based on the initial Y-67 test results and the lab's prediction of a new member's haplogroup.
