Fix FamilyTreeDNA Project Website - Results

We have results from six different Fix families. We clearly have five genetically distinct origins represented, including three haplogroups. This resolves the long conjectured hypothesis that Lorentz Fix and Jacob "the weaver" Fix, who in 1760 lived a few miles from one another in Berks Co., PA, were related. Although not yet conclusive the current data supports a patronymic origin of the surname as has been previously proposed.
