The search for your Stockton roots  

Project Background

We are undertaking the use of Genetic Analysis to further the genealogical study of our Stockton ancestors and family lines. After many years of researching our own elusive ancestors, helping other researchers and learning of the various disputes among Stockton genealogists, we have decided to use the newest tool in genealogy research, "DNA testing". This project will not take the place of your own traditional documentary research, but we hope to provide a companion tool for you to verify your own research, determine relationships and establish family lines.

Knowingly, we will solve some mysteries and create others, but hopefully this project will enable you to find answers to your own family mysteries. For our Stockton cousins who don't know where they fit into the Stockton Family Tree, donating DNA to this project will help you connect to your "Genetic Cousins"

This is an ongoing research project that will be expanding with each new Stockton DNA donor. With the participation of our Stockton cousins in the United Kingdom, we have forged a bridge across the water, providing additional genetic pools and ancestors. "The Stockton DNA Project" will be a valuable resource for our English and Irish cousins to trace Stockton ancestors that may have emigrated to the United States and continue the bloodline. We hope you join us in our endeavor to Discover New Ancestors (DNA).
