Surname DNA Projectfor

Southard,Southworth, Suthers, Southward, Southern, Southwood... and more


All men with one of these or a similar surname are welcome tojoin this project, which is intended to advance our genealogical knowledge.

A concerted effort is underway to determine the English originsof these and many more surnames. For example, did Constant and ThomasSouthworth of Plymouth, Massachusetts truly descend from Gilbert, son of Hughde Croft, who was given the Manor of Southworth at Samlesbury? And was ThomasSouthard who m. Annica Jansen (Van Salee) related to this family? How do someof the other spellings relate to these families, if at all? This is becomingvery interesting, as can be seen in the Results tables on the following pages.We can certainly conclude, on the basis of DNA testing, that Thomas Southardwas not related to Constant and Thomas Southworth at least in the last thousandyears. We do not yet have proof that this American Southworth line descendsfrom the Samlesbury line that includes Gilbert, son of Hugh de Croft.

News! For those who have already tested withcertain other companies...

February 1, 2012: Family Tree DNA now offers the ability to transferresultsi from23andMe, and other companies thus giving us the opportunity tocompare test results with them. For details see or 

Family Tree DNA has always welcomed customers from the NationalGeographic/Genographic Projecti withoutcharge because FTDNAi does all the testing for itand already has the actual samples. Recently, Family Tree DNA acquired DNAHeritage and invites its customers to join FTDNA and any appropriate projectsat no cost. It has now announced a new program whereby anyone who has testedwith Ancestry, GeneTree or Sorenson’s SMGF may transfer his or her resultsfor the nominal fee of $19.

Why would you want to do that?

·        FamilyTree DNA has the largest database of DNA test results in the world and thelargest number of projects for surnames, geographical origins and haplogroups.

·        Itfocuses on genealogical DNA testing and adds new and better tools all the timeto improve the value of testing for genealogy.

·        Youmay order:

o    Y-DNA tests from FTDNA in increments from 12to 25, 37, 67, and 111 to continually enhance your matches to others.

o    Three mtDNAi tests– HVR1, HVR2 and FGS which covers the entire mitochondria for maternal matches.

o    The Family Finder (or autosomal) test whichcovers all the rest of your chromosomes for both men and women to find cousinsto the 5th degree, thus expanding your opportunities to add toyour genealogical knowledge.

o    A wide array of tests that refine yourhaplogroup assignment, determine your placement on the tree of mankind, calledthe Haplotree, and offer you the opportunity to participate in finding new SNPson that tree. If you have an assigned haplogroup, see tofind your current placement and to see what subgroups may already have beenfound for your haplogroup.

 The following is a quote from the FTDNA announcement toproject administrators:

This $19 fee will be credited to customers whoorder upgrades or add-ons. For an additional $39, customers who transfer theirthird party results will also have additional markers tested so that they canreceive matches to Family Tree DNA's 25 or 37-marker level, ancestral origins,and other features of the personal pagei.

What do you get when you transfer third partyresults?

The $19 fee will provide the customer with aFamily Tree DNA personal page which will allow them to join Family Tree DNAprojects freely. This means results will be available to the administrator andincluded on the project's public page for comparison with other projectmembers.

The $58 fee ($19 transfer fee + $39 for theadded markers to Family Tree DNA's 25 or 37-marker level) will include the samefeatures provided to Family Tree DNA customers in their personal pages.

For any additional questions related to ThirdParty transfer, please refer to our FAQ section for help.

If you ordered a DNA test from Relative Geneticsi,Oxford Ancestors, or Genebase, FTDNA continues to offer reduced pricing tothose who join an existing project at FTDNA. To take advantage of this specialoffer, please be sure to contact the project administrator to obtain a specialorder form: Southworth-Southard Project Administrator.


Ongoing! Be sure to visit our Results and Miscellaneous pages forthe latest DNA findings and the Patriarchs page for new pedigrees.


Please Note: We urgently need male direct descendants of the SamlesburySouthworth ancestral line in England to be tested to help others prove ordisprove their lineages. A grant may be available if an applicant's paper trailis strong.       


Why Should You be Tested?

Reading the news, watching specials on Public Television, seeingthe many articles popping up in all the major news magazines … Doesn’t it makeyou wonder how modern science, and DNA testing in particular, can help solvesome of your genealogical puzzles? After spending years rummaging throughcourthouses, libraries, family papers, cemeteries and the internet, aren’t youready to use the latest techniques to find your roots, once and for all?

Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available togenealogists. These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry(father's father's father, etc.) in a quick and easy way. It saves time,prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in noother way. The only cost is for the testing itself. We project administratorsare volunteers who hope to gain knowledge about our own heritage. We receive nocompensation or incentives from Family Tree DNA or any other entity. Note thatonly a male with any of the subject surnames may participate but, if you haveSouthard or Southworth ancestry, you can be represented by even a distantcousin whose name is Southard, Southworth or similar.

How does it work? Scientists mapping the human genome in 2000found it consisted of about 3 billion pairs of DNA chemicals or"letters," and that those letters were 99.9 percent similar from oneperson to the next. It's within that 0.1 percent difference that the science ofgenetic genealogy was born. Just like notations in an old Bible or censusrecords, family history is recorded in our genes. A father's Y chromosome DNAis passed down virtually unchanged to his sons while mothers pass down theirmitochondrial DNA to their sons and daughters. While MtDNA can help us find ourearliest roots, long before surnames came into existence, it is the Y-DNA thatonly males carry that holds the secret for genealogical purposes. And Ladies,don’t feel left out. Just find a male cousin – even a distant one – and he canrepresent your line.

As a Southard descendant and Southworth cousin who has done myshare of “rummaging,” I decided to make science work for me and all the otherSouthard, Southworth, etc., researchers out there who have “holes” in theirpaper trail or want to extend their research to:           

·        * Eliminate or confirm relationships.

·        *Focus research towards related families.

·        *Direct research into a geographical area.

·        *Direct research into a specific timeframe.

·        *Establish country or region of origin.

·        *Confirm variant surnames are the same family.

·        *Learn about our family's pre-surname migration.

·        *Strengthen weak paper trails.

·        *Avoid pursuing false connections.


About DNA Testing

Few of us are entirely comfortable with the genealogical researchwe and others before us have done. Virtually all our findings have words like“probably,” “could,” “may,” “perhaps,” and “assuming” liberally scatteredthroughout. Let’s get to the bottom line. We’ve exhausted all the traditionalresearch tools. It’s time to let a simple, painless DNA test provide theanswers. The cost is a few tanksful of gas or probably no more than a researchtrip to a nearby town. Think about gas, tolls, parking fees, copying costs,meals, possibly an overnight stay – all sometimes yielding little or no newinformation. Instead, you could simply swab the inside of your cheek a fewtimes in the comfort of your home. Then sit back and wait about six weeks. Youwill receive a handsome certificate displaying your genetic profile, a seriesof numbers that are meaningless by themselves. But they hold the key to yourpaternal ancestry and, when matched against the profiles of others, can yieldinformation that can be obtained in no other way. Those numbers will becompared against the ever-growing database at Family Tree DNA and at otheruniversal databases and you will likely find other testees whose results matchyours, if not immediately then in future years. You will be notified as newmatches occur.


About Results

As you can see on the Results page at this website, we have sofar identified several probable lines. Other projects teach us that for someparticipants, the results are not surprising because the traditionalgenealogies have pointed to them all along, but now the proof is indisputable.For others, the results suggest some clear research avenues to pursue. Forstill others, there may be a nonpaternal event in some distant generation, suchas an unknown adoption, and there may be an opportunity to find a heretoforeunsuspected genealogy. Or no clear match emerges, in which case the testee canexpect a future match as more men are tested.

This Family Project can:

1. Help researchers on common or related families work togetherto find their common heritage (See the Patriarch Page).

2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile themand their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches.


Project General Fund

Anyone who wishes to contribute to the project general fund tohelp encourage other testees who might have ties to the Southworth or Southardlines may do so by contacting one of the project administrators. The fund isadministered by the project administrators who determine how and when moniesare disbursed. However, we will honor any strings you attach.

One significant donation is made in memory of Owen Southardwhose sister requests that it be used specifically for Y-DNA "testees whohave a solid paper trail that would benefit the research from our ancestor'sConstant and Thomas Southworth." Southworth men who either descend in adirect line from Constant or Thomas Southworth or represent their presumedancestral line would be eligible.


The Essential Fine Print...

The Southworth-Southard Surname DNA Project or its projectadministrators have no commercial affiliation with any profit-makingorganization and receive no compensation for services or expenses involved withthe project. This website is maintained for posting DNA results and pedigreesof participants who choose to make their information available.

Although the Project offers discounts at FTDNA, that by no meanssuggests a business partnership or other relationship between the Project andthe Laboratory. All funds are payable only and directly to the Laboratory. TheProject will not be the recipient or steward of any DNA samples and has noresponsibility for their care, handling or return to participant, nor duty toact on behalf of a Participant in mediation of any dispute between theParticipant and the Laboratory.

While a match between two participants may suggest that they sharea common male ancestor, it will not identify the specific ancestor and there isno guarantee that every participant will match anyone in this project or in anypublic database.

By participation in the project, the participant agrees to theseconditions.
