About us

The aim of the Kingsmill Project has been to use Y-DNA testing to see if all Kingsmills and Kingsmores living today, are from the same ancient Kingsmill family or families. 

Since 2017 we have found 4 distinct lines using Y-DNA testing which share a common ancestor back in the 15th Century. 

There are good records for Kingsmill families in Medieval times but
precisely linking the lines back to them is somewhat speculative.

We continue to look for further male Kingsmills and Kingsmores to join the project and take a Y-DNA test to further refine the research, and to add to our "Big Tree" showing how the different families are related.

We also gladly accept those of either sex 
who are Kingsmills or Kingsmores or just have a Kingsmill or Kingsmore ancestor, and who have taken or would be interested in the Family Finder autosomal (atDNA) test or who have tested with other companies and can transfer their DNA autosomal results to Family Tree DNA.  The atDNA tests are showing how people are or maybe connected to the known male lines.  Please contact Chris Gilbert before buying any DNA test for further advice.
