Anderson & Andersen Family DNA Research Project- Background



Anders, Andersen, Anderson


The Anderson Family DNA Project began in April 2003 when Herb Anderson ordered the first three kits. Since that time we have grown to 575 kits ordered as of June 2013.

The Anderson & Andersen Family DNA Project was began by Herb Anderson and a small group of Anderson researchers in April 2003. Since that time, the project has grown to 576 members as of June 2013. The yDNA Results are grouped according to each member's Haplogroup and may be viewed here: As you can see, there are eight Haplogroups represented in our project. Some members do not yet have a match with another member in the project. We hope to continue encouraging Anderson males to participate in our project.

We all agree that DNA has opened doors that once were closed in regard to our genealogy research. Think about participating in our project if you are an Anderson male or believe you are an Anderson by birth. Any questions, contact Darlene Anderson at
