The George Surname Study serves as a clearinghouse for George family researchers and helps complement the work of other researchers by clarifying how the different George family lines are actually related to each other through a comparison of the DNA results with more traditional family records. Participants in the George DNA Testing Project have provided some of the genealogical information included here, but a great deal of the material is drawn from secondary sources and information published on the web by other researchers who have not participated in the DNA testing. Wherever possible, we will indicate the sources of the information.
