I wanted to leave an update to anyone in the Hoge family who has interest in DNA testing. We are encouraging those with traceable direct male lineage (yDNA) to any of these family names to join us.
Our results thus far are exciting and opening new horizons to our family research. We have found several previously unidentified linkages between families and we are looking forward to future discoveries. The most important point is these surnames may be tied together with common ancestors.
Initially there were two separate projects at Relative Genetics and Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) which are now combined.We have two websites where test results are being assembled, reported, and discussed. These websites work together and provide multiple ways to evaluate and view the complexities of DNA marker test results.
> > Dwight Hogge began a project at Relative Genetics looking for Hogg related lineages. Dwight has posted an excellent update on our progress on the Hogg Family message Board. >>> http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.hogg/990/mb.ashxhttp://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.hogg/990/mb.ashx Dwight has his own website where he discusses the project direction and results in detail. He has identified a number of genealogically different family lines and we are trying to get specific DNA test results for each of these lines. >>>http://hdhdata.org/roots/hogg.htmlhttp://hdhdata.org/roots/hogg.html
> > Deb Waite has been managing the Hogg DNA Project which is affiliated with FTDNA. >>> http://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/h/hogg/index.htmlhttp://www.worldfamilies.net/surnames/h/hogg/index.html Deb has been actively researching the Hogg/Church family where there are documented surname changes in early America. Lineages are posted with DNA test results to help facilitate family matches. This site also provides direct access to testing with FTDNA with group discounted pricing.We are recommending FTDNA for new members.
DNA testing has been growing rapidly! More individuals are being tested and new marker tests are helping us understand our family history.
All interested parties may contact Dwight or Deb or me with questions via the websites shown above.
