Morris DNA Project- Background



To identify Morris Surname Lines in America by making genealogy connections through DNA (last update 12/27/08)

2008 – Y- Chromosome Family Groups Identified Based on Members Genetic Distance Reports. Currently there are ten (10) Family Groups to be found on the Y- Results page of the Morris Surname Project Website.

In January 2007 The Morris Surname DNA Project has started to collect the most recent known ancestor for each member.

The name and purpose of this group was modified on July 13, 2006, to include any one with the Surname of Morris or any variation of Morris. The reason for the name change is that many people just starting their genealogy research do not know when their Morris Line came to America and they would think that the group would not apply to them. For the Project to be useful we need as many members as possible to see how many Morris Surname Lines are in America.

Originally, in 2003, this group was established to identify Morris relatives that were in the United States before 1790 and was called the "Morris before 1790" Surname Project.
