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.
