About us

The WALDRON Surname DNA Project in conjunction with the extensive genealogical research resources of the Huxford Genealogical Society and the Robert B. Noles genealogical database will help determine (and prove) which of the many WALDRON families in the U.S. are descendants of a common WALDRON ancestor.

Surname genetic testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. The genetic genealogy tests verify a man’s direct paternal ancestry in a quick and easy way. These tests save time, prevent mistakes and provide invaluable data for genealogists that can not be otherwise obtained.

The WALDRON Surname DNA Project is open to all persons with the WALDRON surname (all spellings) world-wide. This project is also open to anyone who believes they are (or could be) a direct male descendant of one of the WALDRON families, even if their surname is not WALDRON. This project is primarily a Y-Chromosome study (direct paternal line); however, those (men or women) interested in the mitochondrial DNA test (direct maternal line)and/or the autosomal DNA test (Family Finder) may join this project as well.

Membership in the Huxford Genealogical Society is not required (but highly recommended).

Many surnames were changed during the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries due to adoptions, out-of-wedlock births, family disagreements, etc. Under these circumstances, the Y-DNA for many descendants may not match other descendants with the same surname. Therefore, this project will assist WALDRON researchers on common or related families to work together to find their correct common ancestors, when that hasn’t been possible via the examination of the traditional paperwork trail.

You are hereby cordially invited to participate in this historic project. WALDRON family members requesting participation are requested to supply Robert B. Noles with their known genealogy.
