Surname DNA Project for

Southard,Southworth, Suthers, Southward, Southern, Southwood... and more

The project has a new administrator. I'll leave the following as it for now and will go through it later. Any suggestions will be welcomed.

(1) To determine the English origins of these and many more surnames and, especially, did Constant and Thomas Southworth of Plymouth, Massachusetts truly descend from Gilbert, son of Hugh de Croft, who was given the Manor of Southworth at Samlesbury?  We now (May 19, 2017) have Y-DNA proof that this American Southworth line descends from the Samlesbury line that includes Gilbert, son of Hugh de Croft. 

(2) To determine whether Thomas Southard who m. Annica Jansen (Van Salee) was related to this Southworth family. How do some of the other spellings relate to these families, if at all?  We can certainly conclude, on the basis of Y-DNA testing, that Thomas Southard was not related to Constant and Thomas Southworth at least in the last thousand years. 

NEWS (April 1, 2017): A new study that pertains specifically to the lineage of Edward Southworth (father of Constant and Thomas) has just been released by the Pilgrim Fathers UK Origins Association.  Titled “In Search of Separatist Edward Southworth of Leiden,” it offers significant new insight into the lineage of Edward, father of Constant and Thomas who followed their mother Alice Carpenter Southworth Bradford to America.  You can download it as a PDF for a small donation to help fund this and further research. I hope this new research will stimulate more interest in our origins and more DNA tests by descendants.

NEWS (February 2015): A new web site design includes the ability to post photos and comments, exchange thoughts, pose questions and answers, and otherwise expand your interaction with Southworth-Southard genealogy and DNA testing. At least for now, all communication is limited to project members. I encourage everyone to participate in the Group Activity Feed.

All men with one of these or a similar surname are welcome to join this project, which is intended to advance our genealogical knowledge through the application of DNA test results.

Note that if you have already had a Y-DNA test with some other company, it may be possible to transfer the results of that test to Family Tree DNA, which hosts this project, for a small fee.
Family Tree DNA has always welcomed customers from the National Geographic/Genographic Projecti without charge because FTDNAi does all the testing for it and already has the actual samples. Family Tree DNA acquired DNA Heritage and invites its customers to join FTDNA and any appropriate projects at no cost. It now has a program whereby anyone who has tested with Ancestry, GeneTree or Sorenson’s SMGF may transfer his or her results for free or for the nominal fee of $19 to obtain full access to all FTDNA's tools. Other companies' test results may or may not be transferrable, depending on when the test was taken (and the technology used for that test).

Why would you want to transfer?
  • ·  Family Tree DNA is the largest full service genetic genealogy company in the world with a huge database of DNA test results,  the largest  number of projects for surnames, geographical origins and haplogroups, as well as the only advanced testing for Y-DNA and mtDNA.

  • ·  It focuses on genealogical DNA testing and adds new and better tools all the time to improve the value of testing for genealogy. 
  • You may order:
  • Y-DNA tests from FTDNA in increments from 12 to 25, 37, 67, and 111 to continually enhance your matches to others. Advanced testing of SNPs is also available.
  • o  Three mtDNAi tests– HVR1, HVR2 and FGS which covers the entire mitochondria for maternal matches.
  • o   The Family Finder (autosomal) test which covers all the rest of your chromosomes for both men and women to find cousins to the 5th degree and more, thus expanding your opportunities to add to your genealogical knowledge.  
  •   A wide array of tests that refine your haplogroup assignment, determine your placement on the tree of mankind, called the Haplotree, and offer you the opportunity to participate in finding new SNPs on that tree. If you have an assigned haplogroup, see to find your current placement and to see what subgroups may already have been found for your haplogroup.
For any additional questions related to Third Party transfer, please refer to the Resources tab, above.

Ongoing! Be sure to visit our Results charts for the latest DNA findings and the Patriarchs section for new pedigrees.

Why Should You be Tested?

Reading the news, watching specials on Public Television, seeing the many articles popping up in all the major news magazines … Doesn’t it make you wonder how modern science, and DNA testing in particular, can help solve some of your genealogical puzzles? After spending years rummaging through courthouses, libraries, family papers, cemeteries and the internet, aren’t you ready to use the latest techniques to find your roots, once and for all?

Surname DNA testing is the primary tool available to genealogists. (Other tests have other advantages.) These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father's father, etc.) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way. The only cost is for the testing itself. We project administrators are volunteers who hope to gain knowledge about our own heritage. We receive no compensation or incentives from Family Tree DNA or any other entity. Note that only a male with any of the subject surnames may participate in the surname project, but, if you have Southard or Southworth ancestry, you can be represented by even a distant cousin whose name is Southard, Southworth or similar.

How does it work? Scientists mapping the human genome in 2000 found it consisted of about 3 billion pairs of DNA chemicals  or "letters," and that those letters were 99.9 percent similar from one person to the next. It's within that 0.1 percent difference that the science of genetic genealogy was born. Just like notations in an old Bible or census records, family history is recorded in our genes. A father's Y chromosome DNA is passed down virtually unchanged to his sons while mothers pass down their mitochondrial DNA to their sons and daughters. While MtDNA can help us find our earliest roots, long before surnames came into existence, it is the Y-DNA that only males carry that holds the secret for genealogical purposes. And Ladies,don’t feel left out. Just find a male cousin – even a distant one – and he can represent your paternal line. Both males and females can also test their maternal line and the autosomal chromosomes, including the X, with the Family Finder test from Family Tree DNA or the tests offered by 23andMe and Ancestry.

As a Southard descendant and Southworth cousin who has done m yshare of “rummaging,” I decided to make science work for me and all the other Southard, Southworth, etc., researchers out there who have “holes” in their paper trail or want to extend their research to:  
·  * Eliminate or confirm relationships.
·  *Focus research towards related families.
·  *Direct research into a geographical area.
·  *Direct research into a specific timeframe.
·  *Establish country or region of origin.
·  *Confirm variant surnames are the same family.
·  *Learn about our family's pre-surname migration.
·  *Strengthen weak paper trails.
·  *Avoid pursuing false connections.

About DNA Testing

Few of us are entirely comfortable with the genealogical research we and others before us have done. Virtually all our findings have words like“probably,” “could,” “may,” “perhaps,” and “assuming” liberally scattered throughout. Let’s get to the bottom line. We’ve exhausted all the traditional research tools. It’s time to let a simple, painless DNA test provide the answers. The cost is a few tanksful of gas or probably no more than a research trip to a nearby town. Think about gas, tolls, parking fees, copying costs,meals, possibly an overnight stay – all sometimes yielding little or no new information. Instead, you could simply swab the inside of your cheek a few times in the comfort of your home. Then sit back and wait about six week. You will receive a handsome certificate displaying your genetic profile, a series of numbers that are meaningless by themselves. But they hold the key to your paternal ancestry and, when matched against the profiles of others, can yield information that can be obtained in no other way. Those numbers will be compared against the ever-growing database at Family Tree DNA and at other universal databases and you will likely find other testees whose results match yours, if not immediately then in future years. You will be notified as new matches occur.

About Results

As you can see on the Results page at this website, we have so far identified several probable lines. Other projects teach us that for some participants, the results are not surprising because the traditional genealogies have pointed to them all along, but now the proof is indisputable. For others, the results suggest some clear research avenues to pursue. For still others, there may be a nonpaternal event in some distant generation, such as an unknown adoption, and there may be an opportunity to find a heretofore unsuspected genealogy. Or no clear match emerges, in which case the testee can expect a future match as more men are tested.
This Family Project can:
1. Help researchers on common or related families work together to find their common heritage (See the Patriarch section).
2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches.

Project General Fund

Anyone who wishes to contribute to the project general fund to help encourage other testees who might have ties to the Southworth or Southard lines may do so by contacting one of the project administrators. The fund is administered by the project administrators who determine how and when monie  sare disbursed. However, we will honor any strings you attach.
One significant donation is made in memory of Owen Southard whose sister requests that it be used specifically for Y-DNA "testees who have a solid paper trail that would benefit the research from our ancestor's Constant and Thomas Southworth" Southworth men who either descend in a direct line from Constant or Thomas Southworth or represent their presumed ancestral line would be eligible.

The Essential Fine Print...

The Southworth-Southard Surname DNA Project or its project administrators have no commercial affinity with any profit-making entity. This website is maintained for posting DNA results and pedigrees of participants who choose to make their information available.

Although the Project offers discounts at FTDNA, that by no means suggests a business partnership or other relationship between the Project and the Laboratory. All funds are payable only and directly to the Laboratory. The Project will not be the recipient or steward of any DNA samples and has no responsibility for their care, handling or return to participant, nor duty to act on behalf of a Participant in mediation of any dispute between the Participant and the Laboratory.

While a match between two participants may suggest that they share a common male ancestor, it will not identify the specific ancestor and there is no guarantee that every participant will match anyone in this project or in any public database.

By participation in the project, the participant agrees to these conditions.
