Task List

This is a project that I hope will become a valuable reference point for any Edsall researchers alike to share their knowledge by posting their DNA tests, resources, pictures, stories, and anything else of interest to this surname.

See the section on our goals and what you can do below. Post questions and comments and add details about your particular area of interest. While I'm not an Edsall I have deep connections in my tree to Edsall's

The Edsall Name Study is Under Construction!! Please be patient as I work to create a useful resource for collaboration.

Our Goals

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Although DNA analysis can assist in determining that two or more participants who have tested their yDNA descend from a common male ancestor, it will not identify the specific ancestor without the use of accurate record documentation used in genealogical research. The purpose of this study is to work together to establish an accurate Edsall Family tree by using the best possible sources available for documentation. To date, there are numerous unrelated Edsall lines. In almost all cases, the common ancestor has not been identified in these lines. We can help the effort by growing the best Edsall tree possible.

What You Can Do

  1. Work cooperatively together with other Edsall profile managers to create the best Edsall tree possible.
  2. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources to Edsall profiles.
  3. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies for Edsall profiles.
  4. Check for duplicates and request merges.
  5. If you are a male with the Edsall surname or a variant and haven't already, please consider testing your yDNA through the Edsall Family Tree DNA Project so that we can all have a better understanding of our heritage and possibly make new discoveries.
  6. Do you have an Edsall profile you are especially proud of? Let Mike Olason know and we will feature it on this page.
  7. Work on connecting Edsall profiles to the global tree.
