DeVore DNA Project Genealogies:
G14 Philip DeVore
J16 John DeVore
H9 John DeVore
Welcome to our DeVore (and variants) Surname Y-DNA
Project Website. Through Y-DNA testing we hope to establish links between the
numerous connected and unconnected DeVore lineages. Males
with the surname DeVore, or one of its variants, are all cordially invited to
become test participants. Women and descendants who do not
have the DeVore surname can participate by encouraging a male relative whose
surname is DeVore to provide the Y-DNA sample.
If you are new to anthropological genealogy (genealogical research using DNA
results) or could just use a refresher, our DNA Links
page might be of some help.
UPDATE: We now have three and
possibly four different lines that appear to share the same haplotype,
and therefore the same ancestry. Check out the
DNA Results page to see how they compare,
or read their short genealogies (see Project Genealogies links - left).
We're doing our research and their will be more to come soon!
How You Can Participate
- If you are a male descendant of a DeVore or some variant surname
(Devor, Devour etc.) you can order either the "Y-DNA 12 marker"
($99.00) or better yet the "Y-DNA Plus: 25 marker" ($169.00)
paternal test from Family Tree DNA.
here for the order form. (Feel free to
email me if you have any questions.)
- If you are a researcher, male or female who wants to join us in
this line of research but don't carry the Y-Chromosome or the DeVore
surname, you can help by recruiting someone who shares the line to
take the test. You can even order the test for them and let
them stay totally anonymous if they prefer.
- Give us moral support and talk it up to other DeVore
researchers. Any help in getting this project going will be
- To provide other DeVore researchers access to a tool that can
help them expand their knowledge of their DeVore surname, connect
with other DeVore researchers and to expand their knowledge of their
- To help us sort the connections between the many early DeVore
immigrants and establish is there are connections between DeVore,
DeFoe, Devereaux, Dever, Dovor etc. (There are currently DNA
projects being developed for Devereaux, Dever, Dovor and so far no
connections are apparent.
- To investigate and expand on, whenever possible, the research
done by the many contributors to The DeVore Families

- As the project progresses, to learn more about our deep roots
and even attempt to answer the question "Were we Huguenots from
