Staud, Staudt, Staudte, Staut, Stayt, Stoud, Stoudt, Stout, Stoutt
The major compiled secondary sources, referenced by many genealogy researchers of these surnames, are the Volumes of "Stout and Allied Families," by RADM Herald F. Stout, USN, (1903-1987). This massive compiled work, for the most part, is the main research baseline for the Staudt-Stoudt-Stout lineage. However, this compiled research provides limited source citation or documentation to support the identified lineage or guide the researcher to original source records. While many may be satisfied with this secondary source, the ultimate goal of most genealogy researchers is to prove and verify their lineage with original or primary source documents. However, the traditional methods of genealogy research may never completely identify or validate the lineage between the various Staudt-Stoudt-Stout family groups.
This Y-DNA Surname Project was initiated for the long-term benefit of Genealogy Researchers of these family surnames and any other spelling variant. In addition, the Project will identify the Genetic Genealogy Baseline of the current generation of bloodlines and may reveal the “genetic clue” to aid in the evaluation of the traditional family history research. Any Male of these surnames or other spelling variant is encouraged to participate in this Genetic Genealogy and Family History Research Study, and "Hopefully" unlock the clues to the History of their Family Lineage. Anyone else may participate by obtaining a "swab" DNA sample from a Male relative of these surnames.
