The HexterDNAProject Surname Project
Open to all males who have a direct line male ancestor with any of the following surnames; Hexter, Hoexter, Hoxter, Hochster, Hoechster, or Hekster. You are also welcome to join if you have a known direct line male "Y" connection to this line. Known surnames would include the Weils of Schecklengfeld, Herzbergs of Breidenbach Meyer of Großfelden, Rosenstein of Niedenstein and Frankfurt. We hope to be able to link many of these Hexter lines together with the aid of DNA and also discover other surnames that may share the same common ancestor within the 8-9 generation range. In addition, we hope to uncover other clues based on haplogroup and matches within this haplogroup. Such clues might shed light on the route and time that the Hexters came to Germany, whether or not they might be Levite or Cohanim and if they have Sephardic roots.
