Greetings to all Hogg, Hoge, Hogue, Hogge, Hoag, etc. descendants.
It has been a little over a year since I started the Hogg DNA project at Relative Genetics.A lot has happened since then.Relative Genetics has been aquired by Aneestry.com and in responce I have decided to run the DNA project in a testing-company independant mode.
Many discoveries have been made.The most exciting is the discovery that four lines of Hogg descent previously thought to be separate lines are in fact connected by a common ancestor.
It is also clear at this time that there are at least 8 Hogg lines in the USA that are not connected, but rather are each a seperate line not related to the others.
I have identified 23 Hogg lines in the USA that each leads to a different earliest known ancestor.Several of the most well documented of thses lines have not yet been characterized by a DNA donor.The discovery of how they are interrelated awates the testing of more Hogg descendants.
I invite all Hogg (and all spelling variations) descendatns to look at my DNA project web page at http://hdhdata.org/roots/hogg.htmlhttp://hdhdata.org/roots/hogg.html .I especially invite any direct male descendant of any Hogg line to join the DNA project.
