Classification: Query
Seeking families descended from heads of households living in Horry County area, South Carolina in the first three censuses of the United States of America (1790, 1800, 1810 or earlier). It is well known that families traveled together and intermarried. By joining DNA studies we may be able to uncover links that have all but vanished. There are DNA tests for direct line male descendants called yDNA tests that trace direct male lines. There are direct female tests called mtDNA tests that trace direct female lines. And most recently there are FAMILY FINDER tests that locate people of any gender with sufficiently close DNA markers to indicate fairly close cousinhood between individuals in the study.

For information on such tests check any reputable DNA lab.

If you already have one or more DNA tests available and have ancestors in Horry County area prior to 1810, please consider joining the Horry County South Carolina DNA group.

If you do not yet have DNA tests, consider getting one or more. These can be obtained in a strategic manner to maximize the information—such as convincing a male direct line individual such as your father or brother to give a DNA sample and doing as many tests as possible on that individual. I have been lucky enough to convince two male second cousins, my father, and my maternal uncle to join. That means I am able to tell when someone is kin to one or two which line the match might come from.

Let’s knock down some brick walls!
