Dear Gleeson or Gleason Clan Members:
I recently had my Y-DNA tested through Family Tree DNA ("FTDNA") and agreed to join and have my test results posted with the GLEASON DNA Surname Project hosted by World Families (worldfamilies.net). In comparing my Y-DNA results with other GLEASONs (and GLEESONs), I’ve been able to conclude that my GLEASON (GLEESON) line is from Silvermines, Tipperary, Ireland. I’ve also noticed a Martin, Michael, John, and James GLEASON (or GLEESON) from the same region (Tipperary, Ireland) with almost identical Y-DNA markers as mine which clearly indicates that I am definitely related to these mentioned GLEASONs (or GLEESONs).
I highly encourage all Gleason or Gleeson Clan Members to join the same project so that we can determine and confirm our ancestry. The GLEASON Surname Project being hosted by World Families is free and it is also linked to Family Tree DNA ("FTDNA"). You can actually telephone FTDNA at (713) 868-1438 and request that they add your name and all test results to the GLEASON Surname Project and to all other projects that FTDNA recommends that may be of interest to all GLEASONs or GLEESONs. For example, I am also involved with the “464xcgg” group and the “R1b and Subclades” group and I think that all GLEASONs and GLEESONs should also join these two important groups.
Anyways, I hope all GLEASONs or GLEESONs join the above-referenced groups so that we can find the missing links between our various GLEASON or GLEESON families. Once you are tested, your test results can be manually transferred to ancestry.com.
Please forward this message to all of your Gleason or Gleeson family members.
Enrique Treat Gleason
