Current Volunteer Count: Forty-four Houghton contributors

There are currently 26 separate Houghton/Haughton lines


We still need many more male Houghton/Haughton surname DNA volunteers to ultimately see how many Houghton/Haughton genetic lines there actually are and to ultimately connect current American Houghton genetic lines with their English Ancestry.

Please consider volunteering.
