About us

The Strudwick DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to JOIN today!


Our project has been running for several years, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries. To achieve meaningful results we need more people taking the YDNA test. We are slowly growing, and each new Strudwick tester adds to our knowledge. Eventually we will have a large enough pool of results to answer many of our genealogical brick walls.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname. It is very likely from the documentary evidence, that a common ancestral link binds the Strudwick and related families, to a single location near the Surrey/Sussex border of England. Participating in this DNA study will help to resolve the origins of the various family trees and how they are related.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Strudwick one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research, and the associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, Strudwick at the Guild of One Name Studies or contacting the Project Administrator.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Strudwick or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males to order a Y-DNA test for 37 markers, as a minimum if possible. For STR testing 111 is the ideal, however for those who can afford it a BigY test provides the ultimate results and will continue to return more results as others test in the future. (Highly recommended for a surname project) If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. To explore your direct female line, you would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Full Sequence test.

Both the Y DNA and the mtDNA test results contain no personal information, and you will match or be a close match to those to whom you are related. This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry.

Order your test kit TODAY and become part of this exciting voyage of discovery.
