The Benedict Surname Project
The Benedict Surname DNA Project has two objectives. The first relates to determining relationships between persons and families bearing the name in recent times. Most, but not all, Benedict families in the Americas can be traced to Thomas Benedict, the immigrant ancestor (from England to Salem, Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1637; thence to Long Island, and Norwalk, Connecticut). But there are other Benedict families throughout North America and the world that may have other, more remote connections. Also, surnames become modified over generations as families migrate to new areas.The second, broader objective, then, is to trace all Benedict connections back into Europe and elsewhere.Participation in the project is limited to males bearing the Benedict (various spellings) surname (see below). However, females bearing this surname may participate by encouraging their father, brother, uncle, or male cousin to submit a DNA sample for testing.
