5. Abraham Sampson Genealogy File Preface
The Descendants of Abraham Sampson is a 13 Generation Report compiled by Stacy B. C. Wood, Jr. and based on the Pilgrim Henry Samson Kindred's "Abraham Sampson Database of Sources". Because there are no recent publications similar to the Mayflower Society's Five Generation Project specifically for non-Pilgrim Abraham, the database was assembled to help prospective members find sources to help prove their lines to Abraham. It is a work in progress that currently consists of more than 27,500 individuals.

8. The Samson DNA Project. (FamilyTreeDNA website opens in new Tab)
The Samson (Sampson) DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA,com is affiliated with the Pilgrim Henry Samson Kindred.
The mission of the Pilgrim Henry Samson Kindred DNA project is to gather a body of DNA evidence that may be used alongside traditional genealogical evidence to further all Samson/Sampson genealogical understanding.
- First and foremost, we are attempting to gain as much knowledge on descendants of Henry Samson and his cousin Abraham Sampson and learn much more regarding any Y-DNA markers that may be clearly associated to their descendant branches. - Secondly, to test males carrying the Samson or Sampson surname that are rooted in the families of England. This is equally critical to unfold our deep history if any Samson/Sampson males can be found there.

To join the Samson Project you must be a Mayflower Society Member connected to Henry Samson or you must be a proven descendant of his cousin Abraham Sampson.
For additional information please contact the PHSK Samson/Sampson DNA Project Administrator: Susan Abanor
