Free listing of Gordon family histories for researchers without eligible male Gordon DNA testers but with family histories submitted to benefit conventional researchers










Not all Gordon researchers are fortunate enough to have male Gordons in their extended family to submit DNA for our project. Many Gordon lines have not had a Gordon male in several generations.

Since DNA is only 1/2 the puzzle and the intent of this project is to help ALL researchers regain their Gordon family history, this page gives the opportunity for non-DNA participants to add their valuable family histories to our project. These ancestors can then be reconciled with the family histories of those you have submitted DNA.

If you would like to submit your Gordon family history for inclusion on this page, please send (any format) to:

To view ancestors, please click on the links provided in the table below.

If you are looking for the Ancestory of those who have submitted DNA, please click here to go to the Results section of our webpage and select the Kit Number of the respective tester for whom you would like to see their family history. Also, be sure to use our Google search engine found on the main page of this website for a focused search of Gordon family histories contained in these pages.
