You said you were curious about the Project. The Goal of the DNA project is to determine IF there is a common ancestor for the Simontons in America and approximately how far back in generations this may have occured. The best we have been able to determine is that there were about 6 to 10 different Simontons that entered America during the 18th century and most if not all came from Ulster Ireland. We know that the spelling of the name Simonton was earlier Symontoun or Symington. There a numerous spelling changes in the name due to language and pronunciation. We believe that there was a common ancestor in North Ireland (Ulster) between 1622 and 1722. The DNA of individuals taking this test (Male Simontons)will by comparison of the DNA show if there was a common male ancestor and about how far back this may have been.
