The CREAGER/KRIEGER/etc. Surname DNA Project (including Crager, Creagor, Creeger, Cregar, Creger, Creggar, Cregger, Cregor, Creiger, Creigher, Criger, Crigger, Crugar, Kreager, Kreeger, Kregear, Kreigar, Kreiger, Krëger, Krijger, Kröger, Kroeger, Krueger, Krüger, Kryger, etc.) was organized on September 1, 2003. Having read many success stories in matches with DNA for genealogical purposes, we decided that it is time to try to advance our research in the many cases where there are no written documents to help to prove our ancestry.

The success of our Project will depend on the number of male participants who join our testing group, as well the documentation of the research connected with each line regarding dates and locations of birth, death, marriage, etc. Please, contact and encourage males of the above surnames to participate in our Project to help to ensure its success.

The testing will be for the male Y-chromosome that is passed, only, from father to son through the generations. Therefore, the testing requires a male with one of the above mentioned surnames or possible other variant. If you are a female with one of the surnames (etc.) or a female researcher, you may have a husband, uncle, brother, male cousin, etc. willing to volunteer in your place.

We have chosen Family Tree DNA of Houston, TX as our testing company. The testing laboratory will be analyzing either the basic 12, 25, or more highly defined 37 or 59 markers on the Y-chromosome. If the markers of two or more male individuals match, it will indicate they descend from a common male or variant surnamed ancestor. It will not identify the specific ancestor, but through the sharing of family information with other participants, that ancestor could be found. It is our opinion that the 37 or 59 marker tests are much better at reporting the kind of data that we need to determine that we are related, as the 12 marker test can find many matches that are not close in generations to most research. You can upgrade from the 12 marker to more marker at a later date, if desired.

Although as a participant you receive a discount at FTDNA, that by no means suggests a business partnership or other relationship between the Project and the Laboratory. All funds are payable only and directly to the Laboratory. The project organizer will not be the recipient nor steward of any DNA samples and has no responsibility for their care, handling or return to participant, nor duty to act on behalf of participant in mediation of any dispute between the Participant and the Laboratory.

While a match between two participants may indicate that they share a common male ancestor, it will not identify the specific ancestor and there is no guarantee that every participant will match another participant.
