Williams Family -- Linking Through DNA

With the help of Family Tree DNA we have connected with many cousins via DNA testing.  If you have a male Williams who is interested in taking the Y DNA test, we encourage you to go to the Family Tree DNA site The more markers you can test for, the closer the matches will be. Recommended - test at 67 markers at least.

As of today - August 11, 2009 - here are some of the ancestors we are related to, linked by DNA:

Charles Williams
Luke Williams
William WilliamsJesse D. WilliamsStephen Williams
Rowland Williams
Isaac Benjamin Williams
Thomas R. Williams
John W. Williams
William Thornton Williams
Richmond D. Williams
James Williams

Update - November 2017
We now have over 50 members in Williams DNA Group 8!

If you have a Williams ancestor connected to any of these lines, you may want to consider DNA testing. We are very interested in finding other Williams lines to participate in DNA testing, especially if your Williams ancestor was from Brunswick, Prince George, Charles City County, Isle of Wight or possibly Lunenburg and Dinwiddie Counties of Virginia; also the North Carolina counties of -- Rutherford, Granville, Northampton, Vance, Halifax, Onslow, Person, Caswell, Wake, Edgecombe, and / or Brunswick.

Family Tree DNA has an excellent web site with lots of information to answer any questions you might have about DNA testing. If, however, you have any questions for any of the cousins who are members of Group 8, please send us an email. We will do our best to assist you.
