I want to encourage WAITS/WAITES males to join the WAITE group at familytreedna.com. My husband has done the 37-marker test and we are awaiting results.
He is a descendent of John WAIGHT who arrived in Charleston, SC in 1768 from England. His line moved from SC to GA to AL. It is John WAIGHT --> Samuel WAITS --> Henry --> Larry --> Benjamin F. --> D.B. --> Douglas --> Douglas.
The WAITE genealogy group is interested in including the southern WAITS/WAITES in their study. As an added incentive, ftdna is offering a $30 discount on the 24- and 37-marker tests until the end of the year.
I'd really love to see potential cousins participate. The url is www.familytreedna.com. Go to surname projects and select WAITE. It's admittedly not cheap, but it is easy and painless, and has the potential for helping us to make a lot of connections!
