About us

The Lickfold DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today!.

Our project is just getting started, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries.

Participating in this project provides the opportunity to 'prove' relationships between each branch of the Lickfold family, which we believe we have found from documented sources about the family. As the project progresses, the results for the various branches of the family will also provide information on the evolution of the surname - specifically, whether we really do all go back to the hamlet of Lickfold in Sussex, England.

The surnames in this DNA Project are being researched as part of the Lickfold one-name study. You can learn more about this research, with its associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, or contacting the Group Administrator.

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 Lickfold 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 find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers (or even 67!), if possible. 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. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
