The Roworth Surname Project
The Roworth DNA Project welcomes all participants. We encourage you to join today! Our project is just getting started, 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 surnames in this DNA Project are also researched as part of the Roworth one-name study. The Group Administrator can be contacted to learn more about this significant research, information about the surnames, and the associated family trees. The surname Roworth is believed to be a locative surname, derived from the village in Derbyshire, and the variants arose over time, often through migration. As a locative surname, where the surname would come about when a person was from the village (de Roworth), we would expect several different DNA results. 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 Roworth or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, please find a male in your family tree to participate. We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, 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. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
