Welcome to the Carpenter Cousins Project.
This is the support page for Carpenter Cousins genealogy, family history, research and DNA testing.
The Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project & the Carpenter-1-Name Project, the Carpenters' Encyclopedia of Carpenters, and Carpenter Sketches by Gene Zubrinsky are part of the Carpenter Cousins Project.
To account for immigrants to North America, who may have anglicized or modified their surnames, the project also includes the surnames Cymerman, Sherbondy, Zimmer, Zimmerman, and Zimmermann. For example, Zimmerman(n) is old German for worker of wood, and in North American, on occasion, the surname was changed to Carpenter or a similar sounding surname.
The Carpenter Cousins Project will grow as members encourage other Carpenters to submit their genealogy, family history and their DNA. There are many Carpenter lines yet to be documented and linked. This includes adoptive lines!
Have you submitted your genealogical lineage to become part of the Carpenter Project? If not, please do so! We welcome documented genealogy, family history and images!
Please note that these web pages are a work in progress. We make additions and corrections continually. Please do not copy this material elsewhere, in whole or in part, since a separate copy will no longer partake of the progress we are making. You may freely link to these pages for reference to the information they contain.
For more information about the Carpenter Cousins Project, or for a genealogical lookup, please contact our project administrator/coordinator: John R. Carpenter.
Regarding Y-DNA testing
Please Note: We do NOT track Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) or Autosomal DNA (atDNA),
Such DNA tests are not cited or used in the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA (surname) project. We only accept Y-DNA tests for the Y-DNA Project. Please remember that anyone, including females, may sponsor a Carpenter Cousin brother, father, uncle or male cousin for Y-DNA testing!
For a brief on Y-DNA testing options, please read the Y-DNA Testing Options pdf.
If you are a FTDNA customer with a Y-DNA test, please request to join the Carpenter Cousins Y-DNA Project, please: CLICK HERE.
If you have Y-DNA tested at another DNA testing company, please contact our project administrator/coordinator:
Regarding ALL OTHER DNA testing
We have the Carpenter-1-Name DNA Project which is for all types of DNA tests, but only at FTDNA. ALL Carpenter females and males are welcome in this project. All types of DNA tests done at FTDNA are accepted.
Please use the Carpenter-1-Name DNA Project for all types of DNA tests.
Carpenter One Name Study Project
For more information about the Carpenter One Name Study, or how to support the Guild of One Name Studies, please contact our project administrator/coordinator: John R. Carpenter, who is Guild Member No. 8001 for Carpenter (Carpentier, Charpentier & Zimmerman(n) - a USA variant) Registered One Name Study (ONS).
