Those of us who are Whitsides (without an e in the middle) are a separate small clan of the larger Whytsyd/Whiteside clan.
Please, any genealogist with Whitside history in the UK, will you contact me. See the bottom of this page.
NB: The Whitside, Cameron, Heath and Sovereen all have an index at the end. Also use the Search function.
At the end of 2003, with the encouragement of the Whiteside Family Association, under the Whiteside DNA Project, I had my DNA analyzed by Family Tree DNA. This company pioneered the use of DNA in the field of genealogy, providing a new way to break through the barriers in Family History.The results of my test showed that with 37 markers we matched a core group of Whiteside/Whitsitt genealogist who have already had their DNA analyzed. One match, Joe K. Whiteside, turned out to be a friend and member of the WFA who emigrated from Northern Ireland to California. We matched in 36 out of 37 markers.
