Gysi/Giese genetic genealogy project
Posted by: Mark Geesey (ID *****8468) Date: October 01, 2007 at 08:27:36

A group of us Geesey (etc.) researchers have begun a genetic Y-DNA analysis of the Geesey family tree. Our lineage originated in Canton Basel, Switzerland. To date we have identified over a dozen immigrants from Switzerland to America in the 18th and 19th Centuries. While we have not been able to establish conclusive genealogical relationships for many of them, we hope to ascertain whether we are indeed cousins through genetic analysis. We are seeking men with any of the related surnames to join the project by contributing a sample for analysis.

For more information about this project please go to the Gysi Project website at FamilyTree DNA:
