-- stopped listing for those after 1819

You will notice that there are at least 3 DNA Families noted ... W001, W015 (mine) and W019 .. the rest are unknown DNA families as no one has tested from the line and they have not been connected to any existing DNA families. Since the study is based on the 46-marker Y-chromosome results only 'living Wells males' can provide the DNA sample. The Y-chromosome is passed 'almost unaltered' from father to son, therefore it follows the biological paternal surname... unless adopted or name change.

If anyone can help connect them, it would be great
