Status summary

Still to do of December 28, 2022:

  • Recruit patrilineal descendants of Thomas Wiswall (preferably through his son Rev. Ichabod) to Y-DNA test and publish their results. Any male who believes they are such a descendant should Read me First

IMPORTANT: Read me First

Given the above (lack of) information, it is entirely possible where this line has no surviving patrilineal (Y-DNA) descendants.

As of December 28, 2022, Family Tree DNA does not have a Wiswall, etc. DNA Project, but has one kit associated with the Wiswall surname and one kit associated with the Wiswell surname.
