UPDATED APRIL 2022
“nc1700sJORDANS” was the starting point in 2008 for an independent dynamic geographic and generational DNA cluster project designed to establish all JORDANs who called CAROLINA home during the 1700s. The work brought to light various other surnames and so was renamed ‘NCFAMILYGENETICGENEALOGY” Project in August 2019. It is now April 2022 and there is a greater understanding of genetic genealogy. SURNAME Projects should really be tagged CLAN PROJECTs. Ymarker tests have made clear a flaw in classic genealogy work. Classic work focused on tracking particular SURNAMES. Ymarker tests have revealed some earnest researchers have focused on the wrong SURNAME. Ymarker tests’ reach 25-26 generations. During that research window a surname match switch any any generation node.
This project is designed to allow first party family historians the opportunity to isolate, identify, and confirm paternal family lines AKA Clan lines. This will bring new eyes to better evaluate all Carolina records and references and hopefully allow early NC families to connect to their CLAN lines overseas.
In order for this project to be successful and for individuals working early Carolina families to have the best resources it is critical for any and all using genetic genealogy to do their work correctly and to make sure raw data for any autosomal test is included in the FAMILYTREEDNA.com database.
SOME CURRENT SURNAMES ESTABLISHED –
** SOME SURNAMES which have surfaced which immediately call for more investigation:
*** There remain MISSING SURNAMES at this time April 2022.
The research window for this project and the ability for genetic genealogy tools to help us with our family history. Now is the hour for any and all of us who are doing family history work to work together. GENETIC GENEALOGY allows one to see matches – so,
If you have established your clan line for your father and your mother and your kits are providential (in other words, a direct CARALANA – North or South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, or VA family whose line lived during the 1700s either along the Atlantic or in a county close to what would become the NC/VA border and still live there, please contact me.
DISCLAIMER: Surnames and locations appear in caps on this site per basic genealogy formatting. Should anyone wish to print and use any of my work it will confirm to recognized genealogical formatting. Capitalizing surnames is no way any effort to shout.
