Project Goals

The project is working to identify direct male descendants of John Wisely born circa 1750 using Y-DNA. Due to courthouse fires in Licking County, Ohio, and Cumberland County, Illinois, many of John’s descendants have no paper trail and cannot connect through traditional research. We're also hoping to connect "across the pond" with more distantly related surname cousins in Scotland.
