The WeirdFamilyTree Surname Project
Wear is my surname, but I have documented cousins using the Weir, Wier and Ware spellings. Most of use took our surname from the word weir which means dam. From the results so far, most appear to be unrelated whether you are a member of this group or the Weir or Ware Group. We have some documented descendant lines but these were already documented through paper trails, which may or may not have actual validity. The Weird Family Tree is a compilation of related surnames in the Family Tree DNA project, which is seeking to determine the relationship of the various spellings of the Weird families around from the world. By comparing our DNA we can hopefully identify how and when these variations took place and where and if our lines tie together. It may take years for other genealogists to realize the research value of this testing but as they come on board - we will be waiting for them.
