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, by using Y-DNA testing.
NOTE:  Please do NOT join unless you are a male with the Lincoln surname, or have reason to believe that your Y-DNA results will match a Lincoln.  This project is not for mtDNA testing, but only for the paternal Lincoln lines.  Members who are not males with the surname Lincoln, or members who are not submitting Y-DNA samples for testing from themselves or a male family member of a Lincoln, or potential Lincoln match, or who are submitting only mtDNA samples, or who are unrelated in any way to a Lincoln family, will be removed.
