Hamilton Family DNA Project2/24/2005

The Hamilton Genealogical Society has organized a DNA project for the male line of the Hamilton family. The DNA project uses DNA markers from the male Y chromosome (reason for males only) to trace family origins. This project can provide valuable clues to possible linkage to various families past those in documented  form. 

 

For the latest results visit site  Latest Hamilton DNA Results.

Some highlights of the current summary are the following. Results are given for over 70 participants. About two thirds of the participants can be placed in one of seven different groups (A to G) with reasonably close matches within each group. Groups A and B are the most populous with about half of all participants in one or the other of these groups. The Group D participants are all documented descendants of Alexander Hamilton, a USA founding father and first secretary of the treasury, so his DNA profile is now known. Most of the participants were not aware of any relationship to other participants so those who match others in the various groups now have new avenues to explore the derivation of their lines. Thus, I would like to encourage each of you to consider participating in the project because it may help you unravel details of your Hamilton line. 

 Most of these participants were previously unaware of the relationships that the DNA results turned up. As we obtain more results we are beginning to see relationships among several people with known ancestors from Ireland, Scotland, and the early American colonies. Thus, each of you is encouraged to consider having your Hamilton line DNA analyzed; the more participants we have, the more possibilities for finding new relationships and extending the knowledge of your Hamilton line. To make it easier to participate, the application procedure has been
simplified and streamlined; visit (Hamilton DNA Project) for details.

Check it out. And if you are a male with the Hamilton surname, consider participation in the program. The more participants that we have the better we will be able to understand the results.
