Montgomery Surname DNA Project- Background

Surnames

Montgomerie, Montgomery

Background

The initial focus of this study was on the descendants of Montgomerys who lived in the Ruhama Baptist Church/East Lake area of Jefferson County, Alabama and other Montgomery families in and around Jefferson County. However, the scope of the project has rapidly expanded to include other Montgomery families throughout the USA, Canada, Australia, Ulster, Scotland, Ireland, the UK, Sweden, and France. As more and more Montgomery researchers become familiar with DNA testing as a supplement to conventional genealogical research, we anticipate that our test results will represent Montgomery families over a much broader area. We are seeking to establish relationships, determine ancestries and ethnic origins for Montgomery/Montgomerie families worldwide.

Surnames in the project include Montgomery, Montgomerie and any of the other many known spellings of this surname (i.e. McGumerait, McGummery, Montgummery, Mountgomery, Mungumbrie, etc.)
