The Rosamond Surname Y-DNA Project is active online at Family Tree DNA. The project is intended to try to genetically link the various Rosamond families who through the years have begun using alternate spellings, as well as tie together those lines of Rosamonds living in various parts of the US and the world. In particular, this will determine which branches of the Rosamond families are descended from the legendary Sergeant Rosemond of Ireland, which from Jacob Rosenmann, and which from other areas.
If you are a Rosamond male (or have a surname with any variation thereof), or have any male friends or relatives with the surname Rosamond, please encourage them to join the project.
From here type in the name Rosamond in the search box and click on the Project Search button. (The project hasn’t yet been added to the list of R surnames.)
When the search results come up, click on the name Rosamond which will be highlighted in blue as a link.
This takes you to the page where you can enter your personal information and order a test kit. Click on the drop-down arrow at the end of the “Type of Test” line in order to see the options for the various kits that can be ordered. The only one required to join the project is the Y-12 marker kit for $99. Ordering your kit automatically puts you in as a member of the project.
Possible alternative spellings are: Rosamond, Rosemond, Rosemon, Roseman, Rosemund, etc.
A website will be developed for project members and I will advise as soon as that is online.
