Project Objectives

The Owen surname project has three main goals:

1.  To obtain test results from American male Owens (surname Owen, Owens, Owings) who descend from each of the immigrant ancestors who have been identified.  These results can show that such descendants are closely related, thereby confirming the family history research, suggesting connections between different branches of the family, and showing the way for focused traditional genealogical research.

2.  For participants whose lines cannot yet be traced back to an immigrant ancestor, to suggest which early ancestor that further research should be directed.
