New LICHTENBERGER DNA PROJECT
I have established a Lichtenberger DNA project at FamilyTreeDNA.
Participation in the project provides a testing discount.
The PRIMARY purpose is to validate a connection between the early Pennsylvania Lichtenberger/Listenberger/Lustenberger/Lighthill families as suggested by the research. If validated through DNA testing this would connect the large families researched of Casper Lichtnerberger and Johann Killian (Gillian) Lichtenberger and also Lichtenberger Pioneers of Indiana.
The SECONDARY purpose is to bring together other Lichtenberger families and to complement the genealogical paper trail.
Testing is simple – requiring only a cotton swab of saliva from the mouth. Because the Y-chromosome DNA is passed from father to son virtually unchanged for hundreds of generations, the testing will focus on males with the Lichtenberger/Lighthill/Listenberger/Lustenberger/Lichtenberg surname. Interested females are not excluded; but, must have a brother, father or male cousin submit a test.
