About the Project

The Bennett Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Bennett name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Bennett name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Bennetts), by time period (18th Century Bennetts), or by topic (Bennett DNA, Bennett Occupations, Bennett Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Hi I am seeking help with Samuel Smith Bennett my ggg grandfather who came to Australia from New York America in the mid to late 1840s. I am wanting to link him to his American ancestors.

I can see how to add an unrelated person and add a category. I don't know what the ONS template is

Is this still an active project? I have some Bennetts I could add
posted by Gwen (Smith) Menezes
It is, Gwen. Go ahead and add your profiles, use the ONS template on them, add the category. If you want to create a research page, you can do that, too, and link it via the category.

I am working on adding a bunch of Bennetts that immigrated from England to Virginia then into GA/FL. Is this of interest to anyone?

Hello everyone! I am lost on getting my Bennett side genealogy, I have up to my great-grandfather who was born in Kansas City Missouri in 1919, and passed away in Maricopa Arizona in 2000; if anyone has someone close or knows more it would be super helpful!

Lycurgus Bennett is my father's mother's father. My dad's GEDmatch number is T786684. I would love to know if there are any Bennett DNA matches.

Looking for Michigan Bennetts, I just scrolled through 1000 listings, only to discover that there are 14,000 more.

This list would become useful if it could be searched, so that all the Michigan Bennetts could be gathered together.

Hi Michael - what's been going on with the Bennett Name Study recently? I've entered a few from NC and SC but am still trying to connect to the older VA and MD lines... Let me know. Leake

This is a "Bennett" line that appears to go back as far as Edward Bennett (1584-1645), and potentially farther. Our hope is that the information we collect is accurate and when possible, errors and differences might be discussed and rectified.
