About us

SEARS, SEAR, SIER, SIERS, SYAR, SYARS, SYER, SYERS, SYAS, SIAS, ZIER, CYR, SAYRE, SAYRES, SEIR, SEARE, SEERE, SEEARS, SAYER, SAYERS, SOARES, TZIORZ, ZAHER and any other reasonable spelling variations are welcome to join the project. Only males have Y-chromosomes, so only male SEARS/etc. can participate. If you are female, you can have a male SEARS/etc. relative submit a sample for your line. To participate meaningfully, testees will need to share their direct male line ancestry back to the earliest known SEARS/etc., as a pedigree (excluding living persons). We would like our project page to be friendly for the testers to meet their goals of tracing their first ancestors. In North American no less than 75 males with some variation of our surname migrated prior to 1750 and so far not a single one is related to the other. This project is barely off the ground in identifying them all. The family coat of arms below has been adopted by North American representatives of the Sears Family. While typically used by the Descendants of Richard Sears of Yarmouth it is not granted to any particular person here. More about the many Sears progenitors can be seen on Wikitree at
