- My name is Dina and I am a History (US and African American Studies)major at Kean University in New Jersey...
I am completely fascinated by the colonial period of our history and decided to start researching the family histories of African American slaves that played a major role in US history...
I am currently working on a slave that was owned by George Washington and during the process have become addicted to genealogy...
Any pointers/help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.
- Hello everyone,
I'm researching Nipp Knipp and variants thereof.
If anyone is interested there's a DNA project in the works.
A new YDNA project attempting to tie males with any variant of the surname Nipp/Knipp to their immigrant ancestors. This project is for males with any variation of the Nipp/Knipp surname, or males who suspect they are from that surname line. Thus, the individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111 test and who has one of the surnames listed for the project, or genetically matches one of the surnames in the project.
Although females do not carry their father's Y-DNA, those who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test.
