Readdick & Reddick DNA matchup.

Hello to all Readdick investigators,

A recent pair of Y-Chromosome DNA tests has resulted in a match between Paternal lines for the Readdick families of Camden & Glynn Counties of Coastal Georgia with the Reddick families of Burke & Screven Counties of Southeast Georgia. One male descendant of Peter Readdick (born circa 1800) and myself, a descendant (gggg-grandson) of Nicholas Reddick (died prior to 1811) have received confimation that our submitted samples of paternal Y-chromosomes are perfect matches.

This means that these two sets of families have the same origins. It is likely that they are descended from the family of Johann Radick, a Palatine emigrant who arrived in Savannah in December of 1737.

The surname spelling of READICK has also been linked with all three of these groups - the Burke & Screven Reddicks, the Camden & Glynn Readdicks, and the Chatham Radicks (many of whom historically adopted the Readick & Reddick spellings of their surname).

Not all linkages have been proven, but it seems likely that most of the Readick, Readdick, and Reddick lines of Southeast Georgia are connected by common descent from the Radick family.

I hope that this is helpful.


Dale E. Reddick
