Wages Surname DNA Project
John Wages of Richland County, SC with his five children


The Wages/Wagers Surname DNA Project

This is a Y-chromosome DNA test limited to male Wages (and any variant spellings from anywhere in the world) from unbroken lines of male Wages.

Acquaint yourself with DNA testing by visiting the web site for FamilyTreeDNA, who is conducting the Wages DNA test:


The collection of the sample is simple anyone can do it.
The collection of the sample is PAINLESS no blood required!
Just rub the inside of your cheek with the cotton swab.

If you qualify and wish to take the DNA Test (cheek swab), let me know
(Tony Wages). You will be sent Test Kit with instructions.
You can use the link below to join the project and purchase your DNA test.

If you choose to join the project without contacting me first, PLEASE order at least a Y-DNA25 kit.
Join

All members please print the release form, fill it out, sign it and return it to me.


WAGES / WAGERS DNA Test Results

This is an on-going DNA Project, so check back often. If you have been to this page before, "Reload" the page to see the latest edition.

Group numbers are assigned as matches occur.

WAGES / WAGERS - DNA Test Results

ANCESTOR NAMES ARE LINKED TO A PDF FILE OF THEIR DESCENDANTS

NOTE:The markers to the right, in red, have shown a faster mutation rate then the average, therefore, if your mutations are in these markers your match may be closer than if the mutations were in the black markers.

Note: If the letters in the column underneath the heading HAPLOGROUP is colored GREEN, it has been SNP tested. If it is colored RED, it is an estimate by FTDNA.

Most of you are researching your Wages/Wagers ancestors -- trying to document at least one more generation back in the chain. The difficulty is getting past brick walls created by lost, burned or never-existing records of births, deaths, marriages etc. Hopefully our DNA project will help you get past your brick wall. How can that happen? The simple answer is for you to find a match between your Wages/Wagers DNA and that of another Wages/Wagers family who has a documented family tree that precedes your own documented tree. Then you can focus on the missing link between your family and the family with matching DNA. The DNA results will not tell you who links your tree and that of the family with matching DNA, but it will tell you that your families have a common Wages/Wagers male ancestor -- what geneticists call the Most Recent Common Ancestor (MRCA or TMRCA).
