he Winkler Y-DNA Genealogy project is hosted by Family Tree DNA. It was started because many Winkler researchers and genealogists came up against the same "brick wall" in which no one could determine the relationship, if any, between the three Wincklers arriving in the Colonies at the port of Philadelphia in 1753 on the ship Neptune, or whether they were from Germany or Switzerland. The three men were Conradt, Hans Jacob, and Hans Domas (Thomas) Winckler. Then Ludwig (Lewis) and Henry Winkler arrived on the ship Edinburgh from Rotterdam at the port of Philadelphia in 1754. Lawrence Winkler lived near the others by 1800 in Burke County, North Carolina. Were they related? STAY TUNED! With enough participants, the Winkler Y-DNA Genelaogy holds great promise to solve these long-standing mysteries.
Project administrators Rosemary and William are volunteers and receive no financial remuneration of any kind from FamilyTreeDNA. Rosemary says, "Genealogy is our hobby." Read her non-technical article, About DNA, and find stories, pedigrees, and much more on this site. The role of administrator for a DNA project is a fascinating challenge. Each is a volunteer who prepares and maintains the website, recruits and works with new members, and offers assistance to participants keeping costs down. Contact Rosemary at mcnerneywinkler dot com or William, wcwarch at att dot net, with questions about Winklers or Y-DNA for genealogy-friendly answers and for participant contact information. See the Winkler Y-DNA Chart below.
