About us

To study the surname Ostrander, we will need Y-DNA results from men with the surname, or if adopted or an NPE and your oldest known ancestor on your male line is Ostrander.
        -Recommended Minimum Testing Requirement is Y-67. Big Y highly recommended especially if you have confirmed you are genetically a male Ostrander.

For broader ancestral research, you may also join this project if you are a direct descendant of any male or female Ostrander, plus associated surnames, like Traphagen, Jans, and Karsten.
        -Minimum Testing Requirement is an Autosomal Test. (Family Finder Test or a transfer from other sites such as Ancestry or 23andMe).

If you have not yet tested, or if you would like to transfer your results from participating third parties... click the JOIN button, and you will be offered purchasing or transferring options.

Group Membership is required to view most information regarding this project (such as the Official Results tab and message board).

We also encourage all Pieter(2) Ostrander descendants to join the Ostrander Family Association (OFA) at www.ostrander.org.
