DNA Testing - Bushong - Origins France?

Good Afternoon, There has been much debate about the origins of the Bushong family. Depending on who you talk to, some say France, some say Switzerland, some say Germany. The Bushong family with various spellings immigrated to America in the early 1700s. DNA would probably answer the question of origin. If you carry the surname of Bushong, Bosang or Beauchamp in France, it would be interesting to see if your DNA matches in any way goes back to a common ancestor with the family living in America today.

I am very excited to announce to you a new project concerning the Bushong family and various surnames similiar in spelling who lived in the same areas back in time to compare DNA to see if they connect with a common ancestor back in time in Europe. I have now establish a Bushong DNA project with Family Tree DNA in Houston, Texas under the surname Bushong. This lab is a well establish and reliable lab. Everything will be confidential. We are very hopeful that everyone who has been wondering if there is a possibility that there is a connection back in time, will be interested in being involved in this project. The Bushong name has evolved into several spellings from what ever the original spelling was depending on who you talk to. In Switzerland it was Boschong but also spelled Boschung, and in this country many various court documents show various spellings from Boshong, Bosang, Bushing, Bossom, Bausaum, etc. The more we have participate, the better the results.
Please get on board and publicize this project. Everything will be done in confidence and we will not be putting private DNA out on the web for everyone to see.

Many other surnames have been involved with testing and have been very pleased including the Sprenckels/Sprinkles/Sprangles. It will give us a lot of information about the family and answer many of our questions about the various lineages.
