Intro to the Study

Requires auDNA and if possible yDNA and mtDNA at the hightest marker levels you can provide.

This is a One Name Study to collect for any Mock who lived in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa or Missouri. Whether they stayed in this region or passed on through we want to know more about those lineages for surname Mock and its variants. 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. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

My great-grandma's name was Mock. I've had auDNA testing and would be interested in comparing!

I've traced this branch back to an immigrant from Baden-Württemberg, Germany who moved to Pennsylvania. Over time they migrated westward, passing through Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Oklahoma, Montana, Idaho, and ending up in the pacific north-west. I am fairly new here, so I don't have my complete tree uploaded yet. I am currently in the process of splitting it up and posting one chunk at a time. I am checking over this branch right now and will submit for uploading asap. -Cindy
