About us

Only Laudenslager males (or males with soundex equivalent or shortened variant surnames such as Louden) can join this project or a female sponsoring said male. Determine the Y-DNA chromosome markers for various unlinked Laudenslager family groups and similar sounding (in English) family surname groups in the USA, and to determine if any of them have a theoretical common male ancestor in Germany in the last 400-600 years. Many Laudenslager families in the USA descend from immigrants who were from the Odenwald region of Hessen, Germany.

For my traditional genealogy research for this family name see these webpages: ... and ... Wilhelm Lautenschläger - The Wizard of the Odenwald
