About us

ATTENTION: All participants of the National Geographic Genographic DNA Project who are descended on a direct paternal or maternal line from any of the listed surnames are welcome to join the DNA Project! For those of you interested in the National Geographic's endeavor called The Genographic Project, please go to this link: http://www.familytreedna.com/ftdna_genographic.html

As test results arrives, we are discovering some surprises. Some families have great genetic distances from others. As there is always the possibility that someone in the past was adopted or took a mother's maiden name, it is even more important that we locate other volunteers to test on the same families, but on different branches of it. Please consider volunteering. There is some funding to assist you. Email me at: aulicino@hevanet.com 

Descendants of the following ancestors are needed for testing, as well as any other Ogan (and variant spellings, regardless of country of origin). We need to test at least two people on each line. Perhaps these families connect to the ones who have tested already. We'll never know unless you volunteer to test.

(1.) Thomas Ogan, b c. 1777 resided KY and OH; had sons William, Richard, James and John

(2.) Peter Ogin of 1790 PA census

(3.) John Ogin, b. ca 1793 Philadelphia, PA who m. Mary Sims
