DNA Tested Olmste(a)ds

It is estimated that over 250 individuals with Olmste(a)d ancestry, within five generations, have taken a genetic DNA test. DNA is a great tool to help you find previously unknown cousins. Listed below are those that have given us written permission to be included in this listing. The first table gives their profile on WikiTree and the known Olmste(a)d lineage of the person tested with the birth year of the earliest listed ancestor. The second table shows the test(s) companies & ID of each individual. The third is their contact information.

Tests at 23andMe may be either ancestral (autosomal) or medical; Ancestry are autosomal; FTDNA may be either Y-DNA (male), mtDNA (female), and/or Family Finder (autosomal); MyHeritage are autosomal.

The identification on DNA testing company sites for individuals may be by name, nickname, initials, or number. When allowed, they are shown below to aid you knowing who might appear on your own “cousins” chart provided by your DNA testing company. Unknown or IDs that are not allowed to be published will have ###### in the field.

GEDmatch is a free site to post your actual DNA results coupled with a family tree that connects you with others across multiple testing companies. It gives far wider potential matches that are not easily determined if they are true matches.

To be added to this Internet page and hopefully bring you additional cousin contacts, email at DNA.
