FOAD Surname DNA Project

Project Tags

The Foad Surname DNA Project is a genealogy project using simple, standard genealogical Y-DNA tests to connect scattered Foad families and to discover their ancient ethnic and geographic origins. In the 1881 census of England and Wales, almost all Foads were found in the eastern half of Kent County, leading one to suspect that there might have been a single founder of the Foad families.

Besides connecting related Foad families where genealogical documentation is not available, one of our goals is to test the 'single-founder' hypothesis for Foads. We have already tested 9 Foad and Foat men in England, Wales, Canada, Australia, and the USA, and found that they belong to only 4 unique family lines If you are interested in joining our project, please visit our Website and contact me at
