The Harsin/Harsen/Harson Surname Project
Our original goal was to determine the correct ancestry of Garret Harsin, our Revolutionary War ancestor, and to determine whether he descended from the Harsen family of New York, or if he was really Andrew Harrison descended from the Harrison family of Berkeley Plantation in Virginia.We compared 12 Y DNA markers between 2 Harsin and 2 Harsen family members to see if there is a connection. The result was negative, however we are not certain the Harsen individuals are descended from the New York knickerbocker line. As a result, we are opening the project to anyone with a surname Harsin/Harsen/Harson so we can determine the interrelationships, if any, of these families. We seek to delineate what relationship, if any, exists between these families.Any male with the Harsin, Harsen, or Harson surname is encouraged to participate. Additionally, there may be some Harrison males out there who might wish to compare. If you are a descendent from Benjamin Harrison V, signer of the Declaration of Independence, there is a chance you may be related to those individuals with the Harsin surname via the male line. We would be very interested in comparing your results with our group.
