- Hello friends and relatives,
The Hooper family DNA project is now more than a year old and in the last
year we've learned so much.
We now have results for 46 Y-chromosome DNA tests and have several more on
order. We've also just gotten an order from our first international participant.
Welcome to Gary from Australia! Maybe some of the American Hoopers will soon
have a new cousin Down Under.
All of the received results are from American Hoopers and they fall into
eleven different families. One recentl

From: firstname.lastname@example.org_ (mailto:email@example.com) Hi Wade,
I've done some work on the early occurrences of Hoopers in Virginia and
I'm attaching a short summary after my signature. Would you mind taking a
look and seeing if you have any candidates for descendants from these
various men? Please feel free to pass this on to any of your project members
if you think it would help them.

I haven't heard of this Samuel Hupper and the DNA project can't help you
unless you know of a direct male line descendant of Samuel. You could
possibly post a family tree containing what you know to the "Family Trees"
section on the Hooper family webpage. The webpage is at

- Hello Folks,
Just wanted to update you on what Wade, Clay & Hal and others are doing on the Hooper DNA project.
We are not the only family doing a DNA project. A number of them are and some have many more volunteers that what we have. But they have been at it longer.
As of now we have a total of 30 who have sent their DNA samples in, and 27 results have come back. There have been a few surprises, we have found that a number of families match, indicating a common ancestor further back than we have bee

However, in trying to upgrade some computer stuff, I've lost ALL the
emails that came within the past month - that I was waiting to reply to
because they were sitting in my InBox and that box was wiped out. So,
if you're waiting on me to reply and I hadn't already, you may want to
resend your message. I don't have a habit of not replying, although
sometimes, it does take me a little while. Some of those email gone now

I'll be checking out your other sites for the Hooper family. Can I subscribe

Please let me know. My mother's maiden name was Hooper and I'm having a hard
time tracing her family. Maybe this would help.

- Hi Brenda,
Welcome to the mailing list. I am sure the other subscribers, like me, are
delighted that another Hooper is on the search.
You can get subscription info on the Hooper Compass at this site:
and then just go to the third link, the one that says "Hooper Order form."
I focus on collecting information on families dating from before 1900, so I doubt
I would be able to help you unless you can stretch back one more generation. I
prefer not to write about later Hoopers, after
