The Brewer Surname Project
Not all BREWERs descend from the same lineage. The surname BREWER is base on an occupation. Any person who had the occupation of Brewer -- a maker of beer or ale -- might have taken on the surname when surnames became required.We want to identify the different BREWER families by using the haplotype, the individual DNA pattern, that passes from a father to his sons. The Y chromosome of related males is identical -- or very similar -- while unrelated men have different haplotypes. We believe that DNA is the only positive way to sort out all the different BREWER families. TO SEE THE LINEAGE OF MEN WHO HAVE TESTED CLICK ON Project RESULTS TAB.
