Free DNA tests/Ham

From ISOGG Wiki

< Free DNA tests


The HAM DNA Project funds Y-DNA tests for males with the surnames HAM, HAMME, HAMMES.

This offer is limited to 6 free kits total, and only available at the ISOGG booth during the "Family Tree Live" conference.

The 2020 & 2021 conferences at the Alexandra Palace in London, England was cancelled due to the covid-19 pandemic.

I understand the 2022 conference in London may be virtual.

Requirements For Free Tests: The project will sponsor free 111-marker Y-DNA tests for British men with the surname HAM. The offer is open to men with documented lineages from London or Somerset in the British Isles. The offer is limited to:

  • A maximum of two free tests per lineage.
  • A maximum of three free tests total with (male) London area ancestry.
  • A maximum of three free tests total with (male) Somerset area ancestry.

In order to qualify for the offer, it is necessary to supply a list of your paternal line ancestors for at least three or more generations (i.e., to grandfather).

Requirements for Financial Aid:

The project also provide some limited funding for other males named HAM who need financial assistance. The HAM DNA Project will pay half the cost of Y-DNA tests, up to the maximum available in the HAM DNA Project General Fund. See:
