Another result was posted today for a participant of the project, this one a descendant of Peter Seitz b c 1755 m Elizabeth of Lincoln Co, NC, descendants went to Madison Co, MO (SITZE). Interesting to note that he is a 12/12 marker match with other known descendants of Johann Heinrich Seitz b c 1712 Germany. Soon to come in the next few weeks are results for a descendant of Andrew Sides b c 1742 m Margaret and George Seitz b c 1826 Paducah Co, KY.
Would like to invite all male Sides/Seitz/Scites/Sitz/Sitze/Sites descendants to take what is a cheek swab test to compare with others. Some particular requests are additional Peter Seitz m Barbara Carpenter KY>LA, Jacob Sides, NC, and additional descendants of Andrew Sitz b 1768 NC m Mary M Bost. > AL. for comparison against the results already posted.
Encouraging all who qualify to test, as it is another avenue for narrowing down your ancestral origins, combined with known paper trails. If you are interested and are a male Sides, etc descendant (meaning that your last name is Sides/Seitz/Sitz/Scites/Sites or variation thereof) or have a cousin, father, etc that can take the test as your proxy, Family Tree DNA has made the 12 marker test available at the group price of $99. Let me know and I'll get a test sent out ot you.
