The Wertman Family Association DNA Project is underway. So far, there have been consistant results for six participants with good papertrails back to George Philip Wertman, who settled in Lynn Twp in what is now Lehigh Co, PA by 1749. We have even discovered a previously unknown cousin, although he has yet to be placed in the known tree. The results can be seen here .
Two more results, one each from sons, Jacob and Johan Michael are due in late June, or early July. Check back and see what we learn. All male Wertmans are welcome to participate, but we are especially interested in testing folks descended from either Simon (b.1747), or Johan Martin (b. 1750), the two youngest known sons of George Philip. Paid scholarships are still available for descendants of these two.
Ladies may participate by encouraging a male Wertman to be tested.
