TROTT-DNA Surname Project- Background



Tratt, Treat, Trett, Trood, TROTT


This Y-DNA project is open to any male with the surname TROTT, including variants such as TRETT, TROUT, TREAT, TRATT, TROOD. The individual being tested should be a male with no female interruption in his lineage from his earliest TROTT ancestor.

The project also accepts members in the following categories. Any researcher with a different surname, whose earliest ancestor is a Trott or variant, or any researcher with one of the surnames listed above, whose earliest ancestor has a different surname, for example through adoption or an out of wedlock birth. Please contact the Project Administrator for more information. Female researchers may also join by recruiting a closely related Trott or variant surname male (for example, father, brother or male cousin) as only males carry Y-DNA.

The objective is to assist TROTT researchers in proving connections to their places of origins. Some TROTT lines originated in England, others are from Germany.

TROTTs were in the U.S. and Canada by the 1600s; still others migrated to Australia and New Zealand. Building a database of different results will enable us to discover connections we might otherwise never have found. DNA testing gives you the opportunity locate YOUR family line.

The TROTT-DNA Surname Project is sponsored by the TROTT One-Name Research Group (TONRG).

We are currently seeking TROTTs for Y-DNA testing. If you are interested in joining, please contact the Project Administrator.

TROTT researchers may also want to consider visiting the TROUT-DNA Research Project, which includes the DRAUDT, DRAUT, DRUDE, TRAUDT, TRAUT, TRAUTH, TRAUTT, TROUT, TROUTS, TROUTT, TROUTZ, and TRUDE spelling variations.

We invite you to explore this project site by choosing one of the tabs above. GOALS outlines our objectives. NEWS provides a brief update of the project. RESULTS gives you more information on DNA results. Y-DNA RESULTS is a visual graph comparing DNA results.
