The Pitts Surname Project
The Pitts DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today! Our project is growing, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname. The DNA Project is working with the Pitts one-name study, which is registered with the Guild of One-Name Studies, London, England. The surnames Pitts with variants Pits, Pittes, and Pytts are being researched as a one-name study, which is a study of all occurrences of a surname.. You can learn more about this significant research, and the associated family trees by contacting the one-name study.. The one-name study may hold information to assist you with your family history research. Pitts@one-name.org The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Pitts or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree. We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order fewer markers, either 12 or 25, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more. Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test. Both the Y DNA and the mtDNA test results contain no personal information, and you will match or be a close match to those to whom you are related. This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry. Order your test kit TODAY, at the bottom of this page, or visit the web site shown at the top of this page for more information.
