THURMAN and Variations DNA Project - Results

Since its inception in 2003 the Thurman DNA study has steadily grown. Increasing numbers of Thurman researchers are discovering the value of DNA testing. We continue to improve our analysis techniques as population geneticists and anthropologists find new information.

We welcome participation in our project by any and all men with the surname Thurman, Thurmon, Thurmond, Thoroughman, Thurmer, Turman or other variations (search = Th?r*m?n*). Please contact the volunteer project administrator with any questions or for assistance. Current results and distinct genetic groups can be viewed in the Y-DNA results tab at the top. The Thurman & Variations volunteer project administrators welcome any and all questions!

Lineages are documented as accurately as possible using census data, birth/marriage/death certificates, wills, tax records, deeds, Bible entries, etc. As new information is found revisions will be made. The following list shows the current DNA project participants’ most distant documented ancestor:
