Crockett DNA Project


Surname DNA testing is the newest tool available to genealogists. These tests help genealogists verify their paternal ancestry (father's father) in a quick and easy way. It saves time, prevents mistakes, and provides invaluable data that can be obtained in no other way.

This Family Project is started to:

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

2. Identify the DNA of the ancestor families and compile them and their lost branches into distinct genetic lineages through DNA matches, including the sorting out of the relations to Davy Crockett. 

Davy, Davy Crockett... We all know the song and we all know the lore surrounding this great Frontiersman and Statesman. We also all know that most of our Crockett families claim to be related to him either directly or as cousins, but that many of our Crockett families came from different areas of the county and it is not likely we are all directly related to this one man.

Then there are the Williams, other Davids, Johns, Alexanders, and so many other first names that match and crisscross this great county of ours. Where do they all come from and where do they all fit in our lineages. There are many written records we can follow but we sometimes must assume we have followed the right branch and the data conflicts at so many points and times. Many of us are bound only by family lore and the most likely path our ancestors took to get us to where we are today.
