This page has been set up to assist members of the Family Tree DNA COATS Surname Project, but all COAT/E/S line are welcome to participate.

For more information on the FTDNA COAT surname project results please click here.

To go straight to the FTDNA results pages use the links below:-

We plan to categorise profiles on Wikitree as follows:

  • The patriarchs of all our project testers (oldest male ancestor) will be shown here.
  • For Family Finder project members, whose oldest known ancestor is a matriarch ie. female, they will be shown here.
  • Ancestors who are considered DNA confirmed can be found here.

This is a work in progress, please contact one of the project admistrators should you wish to add more information to these pages.

Bristol Channel DNA Project

Many of the patriarchs of the COAT/E/S lines originate from South East England, particularly Somerset.

The Bristol Channel (Welsh: Môr Hafren, meaning 'Severn Sea') is a major inlet in the island of Great Britain, separating South Wales from Devon and Somerset in South West England. It extends from the lower estuary of the River Severn (Welsh: Afon Hafren) to the North Atlantic Ocean. It takes its name from the English city of Bristol, and is over 30 miles (50 km) across at its widest point.

If your ancestral line is associated with this area, please also consider joining this project. For more information see the Project page at FTDNA.
