Dear S. Becker and others who have posted on this board in the past. I am sorry that I may not have responded before. I remember now that sometimes I couldn't figure out how to. I see now that I have to create a New Thread.
Yes, the project on Family Tree DNA is still going strong. We have lots of new participants. Any male who carries the Hewitt surname or variant can join. If you are female, you can ask a brother, father, grandfather, cousin, uncle - any male to test for you if he carries the Hewitt or variant surname. If you are adopted or do not have information about your direct paternal line, and match others in our project, you are welcome to join us.
Go to www.familytreedna.com/public/Hewitt
to see our website. If you tested with AncestryDNA or 23andMe, you can transfer your results to FTDNA.
