The Mumford Surname Project
Researching the Mumford surname and variants becomes more difficult as research moves from the eighteenth to the seventeenth century. Not only is there a paucity of records but determining the original form of the surname becomes even more difficult. There is ample evidence that the Mumford name and variants have at least four origins, Saxon, Norman, French and Dutch. The first two tests in this project examined two families that, based on research, appeared to have a common ancestor. The results determined not only were they not related but were of different haplogroups, Nordic and Western European. As more individuals join this project it is hoped we can sort out these various groups and, by that means, do more effective research.
