I'd like to invite any and all LEPPERT researchers to join our LIPPERT / LEPPERT DNA PROJECT.Please read the following information and if interested, please contact the LIPPERT / LEPPERT DNA Administrator at the bottom of the message.
Earl ==================================================== JOIN THE LIPPERT / LEPPERT, etc., SURNAMEPROJECT
This project has been expanded to identify the possible interrelationships of persons bearing surnames such as Lippert, Leiper, Leppard, Leopard, Leaphart, Liebhart, Libhart, Leppert, Leper, Lepper, Leber, Leaper, Lephart, Liphart, etc.
It was first initiated to determine the ancestors and related branches of Johannes Lippert of New Holland in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
But now we would like to make contact with relatives / descendants from the old country, Germany, etc. to see if any of the other spellings of the name are indeed related.
Exerpt from a recent email from the LIPPERT / LEPPERT, etc., DNA Administrator, Dale J. J. Leppard, "The German family that we seemed to match with is Leppert from Baden."
A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA and acquire a new surname by way of marriage, so the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test. Females who would like to check their direct paternal line can have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test. Females can also order an mtDNA test for themselves such as the mtDNA or the mtDNAPlus test and participate in an mtDNA project.
