Beasley Project Trees
Welcome to the Public Listing of Project Trees for the Beasley Name Study. For each lineage under development with the Name Study, we have a Patriarchal Lineage Tree headed by the Earliest Beasley Ancestor and including the descendants of that ancestor.
Wherever YDNA tests are available, the lineages are identified by Haplotype. Some Haplotypes have only one tree and some have many. It is expected that trees of the same Haplotype will have a common ancestor and the goal is to link these trees.
Lineage Trees of differing Haplotypes will not be linked by a common Beasley ancestor but may be associated with female ancestors or adoption.
Wherever a Haplotype is confirmed by two or more matching YDNA tests, it is Labeled with a color. Presently, the following color groups have been identified: Blue Group, Green Group, Yellow Group, Red Group, Brown Group, Teal Group, Orange Group, Purple Group, Gold Group, and Olive Group.
Wherever the is a single, unmatched YDNA test, the lineages are assigned Grey Group and wherever there is no YDNA test the Tree is labeled White Group.
There are presently at least 100 Patriarchal Lineage Trees in the Beasley Study.
The official Project Trees are located at Ancestry.com under the Beasley Project Account. All the Project trees are listed as Private and Searchable. Access will be shared on a case by case basis. These trees are under development, some further along than others. Development and sourcing is carried out at Ancestry, online by those who are assigned shared editing rights.
All of these trees are copied over to the TNG website located here, at the Guild Sponsored web service. They are periodically updated from the original files at Ancestry. These trees are publicly available with privacy restriction for any living person. No editing is allowed and Gedcom download is not permitted.
The one thing that is extremely valuable is that all trees can be cross-searched. It is possible to identify possible links or duplications between trees and any individual found will be located in the specific tree or Haplotype.
