             Gentlemen of our family with American Revolution ancestors, you do not need to feel left out.  You can become Sons of the American Revolution, if you are a descendent of the Gibbs family.  Contact Kim for more details.

Gibbs Surname DNA Project On Line

                 America’s first DNA genealogy driven DNA testing service.  “Genealogy by genetics is the greatest addition to Genealogy since the creation of the family tree.”

                 DNA 101-Human sex is determined by the X & Y Chromosome.  A mother always gives an X, while the father gives either an X (a girl) or a Y (a boy).  The Y is the only nuclear chromosome that escapes the continual reshuffling of parental genes during the process of sex cell production.  Y has inherited traits that are unaffected from father to son, and they are uninfluenced by the mothers X  Chromosome.

                 These unique features make the Y Chromosome useful to genealogists.  With growing participation, we will be able to make great strides in our family trees.

The SAR is a "lineage" society. This means that each member has traced their family tree back to a point of having an ancestor who supported the cause of American Independence during the years 1774-1783.


To perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men
and women who achieved American Independence;
to promote the development of an enlightened public opinion;
and to foster patriotic citizenship;
-- these are the objects of our Society,
Daughters of the American Revolution.

   The Gibbs Surname DNA Project was started in April of 2003 by a small group of amateur Gibbs genealogists with the goal of using newly available technology and the science of molecular biology to determine the genetic signatures of as many Gibbs family lines (haplotypes) as possible.  Genealogists share a hope that hard science can bridge some of the gaps between our sundered lines and allow us to confidently link together the results of conventional research into expanded lineages.
