Background

Welcome to the Ogan DNA Project.

My name is Emily Aulicino, and I have been gathering Ogan data for over 30 years. As a result, I have found many major family groups with the Ogan surname, but no records, as yet, have been located to connect these families. With the hopes that DNA testing will assist in crumbling our brick walls, I am excited to be your administrator for this project, and urge you to join me in solving our surname dilemma.

As only the males with the surname of Ogan (and variant spellings) can be tested, please consider volunteering, or if you are not a male and/or don't carry the surname, assist in locating possible candidates to test. Each of you who cannot test could also consider contributing financially to those who can. There is some funding to assist. I recommend that anyone wishing to test to consider a 37 marker as this provides a more accurate match.

In order to find DNA matches, a tester needs to allow his DNA to be available to the public. If you select to have your results made public, your results will be linked to http://www.ysearch.org to allow for matches with other testing companies. Either the tester or the project administrator may link the data with Ysearch.

I have started an Ogan DNA email list that disseminates information on the lineages being tested and on various DNA topics as they relate to genealogy. You do not have to be a volunteer for testing to be a part of the Ogan DNA email list. Email me, if you would like to be included in this e-list.

I have also registered the Ogan surname with the Guild of One-Name Studies (GOONS) in order to gather information around the world to determine the origins of the name and to test any Ogan male.  The website for the Ogan One-Name Study provides information on the location and origins of the surname and the archives will contain Ogan information as found throughout the world.  You are most welcome to contact me about providing any information you may have.

The success of this website will depend upon contributions of other Ogan researchers both with participation in the DNA Project and in providing source documentation and family records to assist everyone in understanding the lineage of the various DNA groups posted to this site.

As our group grows, there will be a need to revamp this website to assist its members. Send your ideas for this website, as well as any lineage you would like posted to the group email list, directly to me. In the least, I would like to post the ancestors in brief form for those who are testing. We do wish to respect everyone's privacy, so please to not expect any dates and locations for living persons to be added to this site. At best, the year of birth may be included. It is also imperative that we post genealogical data that has good documentation to minimize errors. If you share data that is speculative, please clearly state so.

Again, welcome to the group. We hope you enjoy your visit and that you will be the one to provide that missing link we all need! If you have question, email me at: aulicino@hevanet.com

Enjoy, Emily
