The Harwood Surname Project
All Harwood, Horwood, Harrod, Harod, Herward, Herod, and similar surname males in America, the British Isles, and around the world, are cordially invited to take the Y-DNA test and join this new Harwood Family History Y-DNA Study. Female Harwood descendants and male Harwood descendants not having the Harwood surname are also cordially invited to participate and join in advancing the Study by encouraging their Harwood-surname brother, uncle, cousin, etc., to submit a simple cheek-swab test. NOTE: This Study may have funds available from time to time to contribute toward testing costs for certain Harwood lines not previously tested and for special lines where a second test is being sought. Please inquire if a group contribution is available for your line. We recommend the y-dna test be at least 25 or preferably 37 markers. The more markers, the better the bang for the buck. The 12-marker test is too general to be very useful for genealogical dna tracing, and typically needs to be upgraded to at least 37 to provide enough specific data. The newest 67-marker test has the most accurate and specific reach back into Harwood Y-DNA history and the greatest bang for the buck in markers per dollar.
