About us

Item:  New Worden clade J-Y26712 discovered! See main page.

New information about the deep roots of the men who descend from William Worden b. 1500 is now available. See the News item on the main page.

The Worden DNA Project is now in Phase 3. We encourage all Worden cousins, male and female, to order the Family Finder test ($99) from Family Tree DNA. If you have already tested, log into your MyFTDNA page and order an upgrade; if you have not yet tested at all with FTDNA, click here. Choose the Join Request tab in the black bar at the top of the page.

: The Worden Family Association now sponsors a grant program to help with funding for tests. Please go to Worden DNA Project (near bottom of home page) for details on this new offering. Since the cost of testing is the major deterrent to participation in any DNA project, anyone who wishes to encourage participation by others who may be eligible for this project or who wishes to sponsor another person to be tested is invited to contribute in one of these two ways: a. You may order a test for a specific person to be tested and may charge it to your credit card or request an invoice to be paid after the DNA sample has been returned to the lab. Anyone may pay the invoice; or b. You may send a donation in any amount of $25 or more to be added to the General Fund for the Worden DNA Project. Simply follow this link: Contribute here. Or contact the project administrator doriswh@gmail.com to specify how you want the money disbursed. Please contact the project administrator, doriswh@gmail.com, for details as to how the General Fund will be administered if you are interested in contributing to it.
