April, 2012: Benjamin Andrews (the father of George H. A.) is believed to be a descendent of the Wallingford, Conn. Andrews, who, born in Wallingford, moved to Litchfield Co., Conn. in the ~1740's, became involved with the Congregational Church in Canaan, Conn. in the 1750's, and in the 1760's moved to what is now Saratoga Co., New York, where we find Benjamin and his relatives in the 1790 Census.

A review of several Wm. Andrews', born ca 1600, who immigrated to New England in the 1630's, 1640's, from many listed sources.
Now we need male Andrews, with a lineage to Wallingford, to join our Y-DNA Project. DNA will help verify the above lineage.
This project still has an earlier objective: To prove that the three sons
of George H. Andrews were
1. William C. Andrews, b. 1812 in Essex Co., New York,
2. George T. Andrews, b. ca 1807 in Essex Co., New York, and
3. Ray W. Andrews, b. ca 1825/26 in Franklin Co., Ohio
by finding male descendants and comparing their DNA.

The purpose of this Andrew DNA Project website is two fold.
First: To share
the results of DNA testing on persons named Andrews, that have matching
Second: To hopefully extend the ancestries of this lineage of Andrews in the USA back to, probably, England.
The man who thought of this website has put his pedigree file into the World Connect Project on Roots Web. The file name is Andrews62. The key Andrews is George H. Andrews, believed to have been born about 1783 in what is now Westport, Essex Co., N.Y. [Mar 2012 update: born in Saratoga Co.] His father is believed to be Benjamin Andrews. On Roots Web, click on Advanced Search, then input Andrews into the Surname box and input George into the Given Name box. Then click Search.
The earliest ancestor is Clodius II (Clodie) King of The West Franks.
Find him by selecting "F" and then click on FRANKS.
Charlemagne is found by selecting "H" and
then click on HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE. From Charlemagne's descendancy
click on Ermengard, Countess of ANJOU, generation 10,
click on her descendancy,
click on Joan PLANTAGENET, generation 10,
click on Joan's descendancy,
click on Elizabeth GRAY, generation 10,
click on Elizabeth's descendancy, and you finally come to Colonel C. (Charles) ANDREWS marrying Mary (Hattie) CURNETT.
The same pedigree file, but with pictures, has been submitted to Ancestry.com, to their Family Tree section. But to view this tree, a viewer has to be a member of Ancestry.com, which has a monetary cost. The tree name is "A_Andrews". Also, the Ancestry.com tree has been uploaded to MyHeritage.com in 2016. And the tree is also on FamilySearch.org, using submission #MMQF-Q88, but this file has not been updated since 2011.
DNA testing has been accomplished using DNA Heritage. It was
completed 4 August 2009. 2012: now we use FamilyTreeDNA, because
DNA Heritage was purchased by FamilyTreeDNA.
All men named Andrews, and its variations, are encouraged to get their DNA tested for genealogical purposes. Be sure to select a test with the number of markers in the 37 to 43 range, in order to have a meaningful result for comparisons. Be sure to post the results on the Ysearch database. Then perhaps all of us will be able to extend our knowledge of our ancestors.
Andrew “man,” the first of the disciples called by Jesus, had a name much revered by the Church in medieval times. St. Andrew is the patron saint of both Scotland and Russia. Anderson is the ninth most common surname in America. It owes its position to the regard for Andrew in England, Scotland, and the Scandinavian countries. Andres is also frequently observed, especially as a Spanish form. Norway and Denmark often spelled the ending –sen, but many changed to –son in the United States. Andrews is from Scotland and McAndrew is from both Scotland and Ireland. The pet form is the aphaeretic Drew, which as a surname is also from Old German drogo “carrier.” Forms of the surname from Norway are Andresen, Anders, and Enders. The Swedes eliminate the extra s in America to become Anderson. The French form is Andre, which often appears as Andre’; the accent outside of France is sometimes an affectation. The Italian form is D’Andrea, the Polish is Andrzejewski, the Czechoslovakian, Ondrus, and the Ukrainian, Andrijenko.
Andrews males, especially with a lineage to Wallingford, Conn. are en-couraged to join our Y-DNA project. Please contact us !
