Algonquian East is a DNA project for original, first, indigenous people who inhabited eastern north America prior to European colonization. These original people include, First Nations, Native American, Aboriginals, American Indians and Indians, U.S. and Canadian government recognized or not. The Algonquian East Project is a Family Tree DNA project to identify direct maternal and direct paternal lineal descendants (blood relatives in the direct line of descent), tribal community names, community locations, and current day surnames of Algonquian speaking communities previously located in Eastern North America along the Atlantic coast; also known as the Dawn-land, Eastern Seaboard, tidewater region, Martime Provinces, and Atlantic Canada. The Algonquian communities were located in the current day coastal areas of northeastern South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Main, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Labrador, and the Gaspé or Gaspésie Peninsula. This project is administered by yDNA Q1a3a1 (Q-M3) haplogroup individuals (Native American) who are direct lineal descendants of Algonquian speaking tribes, nations, and tribal Elders throughout eastern north America.
