Williams Family -- Linking Through DNA

Thanks to Adrian Williams and his terrific website, Williams Genealogy, we now have the ability to locate new cousins through DNA testing. If you would like to visit Adrian's site, here is the link: Williams Genealogy - Home Page

With the help of Family Tree DNA we have connected with many cousins via DNA testing. If you will follow Adrian's link to DNA Results from the Home Page, you will find us listed in Group 8 on the Results Page. Those cousins are linked to us but we have not yet identified the connecting ancestor.

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

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

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.
