About us

Eight Lincolns came to America in the 1630s from England, mostly from the Hingham, England area, to Hingham, MA. They are: Daniel the husbandman, Thomas the weaver and Samuel the weaver (Abraham's ancestor) Lincoln, who were all brothers; Thomas the cooper, Thomas the husbandman, his brother Stephen Lincoln, Thomas the miller and Sgt. Daniel Lincoln. Daniel the husbandman and Thomas the weaver had no children; the other 6 Lincolns are the progenitors of nearly all Lincolns in America. I am tracing as many Lincolns as I can and their lineage. This DNA project is intended to see if the 'Thomas Lincoln the miller' line is related to the president's, and also will serve to connect 'unknown' Lincolns to their lineage by DNA testing. Thus I hope to be able to determine how the various Lincolns were related in England prior to their emigration. I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH: Please note that this project is intended to research the MALE Lincoln lineage only - so ONLY Y-DNA tests are appropriate, and ONLY for males with the Lincoln surname. Please DO NOT join if you are not a male Lincoln either by name or known Y-DNA. Anyone who does not match the Lincoln surname and also does not demonstrate Lincoln lineage, either by DNA or by paper records, will be removed from the project. From now on, you must request to join the group.
