Update on GRAMMER DNA Project
Posted by: Theresa Grammer (ID *****6162) Date: September 10, 2008 at 16:01:24

As many of you probably know, my dad participated in the Grammer DNA Project, which is on the FamilyTreeDNA website ( ). You can find the Grammer page by doing a surname search. So far, he is the only GRAMMER male descendant to do the DNA test. This line goes back to James G. Grammer born ~1810. Many think he is the son of Joseph Grammer in TN.

It is my hope that more direct male descendants will take the test, so we can learn more about the family history.

There is a 25/25 marker match with another individual. However, his family surname is not Grammer. His family traces back to Berne, Switzerland in the 1600's.

What does that mean???
The 25/25 match indicates there is a likely matching ancestor (~95%) around 12 generations ago. It could mean there is a father reported that is not the true father (adoption?). It could mean someone changed surnames. Is Joseph Grammer really a descendant of the Grammer family tree? Without more data, we just don't know.

Thank you,
