An introduction to this issue of Tullis Trees.
Tullis Surname DNA Project
by Thomas S. Tullis
An introduction to a genetic genealogy study being started to determine if
various Tullis males share a common paternal ancestor. For example, if we
can determine that a descendant of Moses Tullis (of New Jersey) shares a
paternal ancestor with a descendant of Claudius Tullos (of Virginia), that
will establish a connection between the two lines.
A Tullis Photo Album
Photos supplied by Stephen Altic; text and research by Thomas S.
Presents 30 photos from an old Tullis photo album. The album is believed
to have belonged to the family of Oliver M. Tullis of Troy, Ohio, and all

photographer in the Troy area and he took many of these photos, which
include his own family, all of his siblings, and many members of their
families. Also includes a report of the known descendants of Oliver and
