Wheelock

Wheelock Surname DNA Project - for ANYONE with Wheelock ancestry!
  • 35 members

About us

Some specific goals of the project include answering the following questions:

  • Do all major Wheelock family lines with a European origin descend from a common Wheelock ancestor?
  • Do all Native American Wheelock family lines descend from a common Wheelock ancestor?
  • How many different Wheelock family groups can we identify, and what DNA signatures characterize the different lines?
  • From which ancient clan father (the haplogroup patriarch from thousands of years ago) does each branch of Wheelock descend?
  • In the United States, are the Wheelocks who descend from James Wheelock of Virginia related to the Wheelocks who descend from Ralph Wheelock of Massachusetts?
  • By comparing DNA results for people with well-documented pedigrees, can we trace any particular DNA changes (mutations) to particular Wheelock ancestors and thus enable others to identify their ancestors even when they lack a definite paper trail allowing them to trace back that far?
