Ingram Surname Study

About us

Please complete a thorough search of all Family Tree DNA's projects to insure our study is the best one for you. [When we refer to Ingram, we are including all various spellings]. The Ingram Surname Study is a Y-DNA surname specific project. The Y-chromosome only exists in the male population. It is passed from fathers-to sons. To participate you MUST descend directly in an UNBROKEN male-to-male line from a Ingram ancestor or have a Y-DNA37 match a study member Ladies are extremely valuable to our study. Since you do not carry the Y-chromosome, you can locate and sponsor a male Ingram relative to test on your behalf, you can share your research and encourage others to test or donate to our study. We recommend the Y-DNA37, 67 or 111 tests for all members. We suggest everyone, male or female, take a Family Finder test, even if not able to participate in our surname specific study. All members MUST share their Ingram lineage with the administrators; either by GEDCOM or expanded pedigrees (to include your earliest proven ancestor). Careful review of submitted lineages in conjunction with Y-DNA results will allow for better comprehensive interpretation. If you are interested in the project but do not meet the requirements, please consider donating to our general fund. If you would like to "target" a specific lineage or branch to be tested, please let us know.
