Ancestral Lines

This page contains details on the various lineages represented in the Heffernan DNA Project and where the project members fit into those lineages.  Each lineage begins with the patriarch as person number 1 in generation 1 followed by his descendants grouped by generation.  For each person in the descendant listing, birth (b), death (d), and marriage (m) info. is given (if known).  Also listed are the person's known children and their birth info.  Female children are listed in a gray font to note that there is no Y-DNA passed down through that child.  If a male child's descendants are continued in the listing, then the person number will be listed to the left of the name which can be found in the next generation group.  If a person in the descendant listing has been Y-DNA tested in the Heffernan DNA Project, their Member ID will appear in parentheses after their name.  To protect privacy for project members, some people who were born after 1900 will only be listed as "son of such-in-such", or "grandson of such-in-such", etc. 

If you have any additional information or corrections on any of these lineages or other lineages, please contact me.  And, if you are a Heffernan male, or know of one, who is connected to any of these or other Heffernan lineages and would like to participate in the Heffernan DNA Project and be tested, please visit the Join the Project page for details on joining the project.
