About us

Started in October 2010 the project is open to all males bearing the Wishart surname and its variant spellings.

A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test.

Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA and acquire a new surname by way of marriage, so the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test.
Females who would like to check their direct paternal line can have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test.

Wishart Connections

A website which aims to help all Wisharts learn more about the history of their extended family, read stories of adventure and success, and also maybe some tales of misadventure! Genealogist, Jack Wishart, with over 22,000 Wisharts on his family tree database, is almost certain to have details of any Wishart ancestors you have, especially ones in Scotland, and may even be able to put you in touch with living relations.
