Post Your Pedigree

To search for a particular pedigree on this page, simply hold down Cmd+F (Mac) or Ctrl+F (PC) and enter any relevant names or ID numbers.

Everyone should submit their Gleason/Gleeson pedigree below. This helps collaboration with your fellow researchers.

This page attempts to list the Ancestral Gleason Lines of everyone in the DNA project who is currently researching their Gleason/Gleeson ancestry. Each pedigree goes back to the earliest known Gleason ancestor in the researcher's family tree. This may either be a Gleason Patriarch or a Gleason Matriarch.

Please post what you know about your Gleason/Gleeson pedigree in the comments section below using the following format and going all the way down to you. If you have had a DNA test, please include the kit number should you choose, and your email address for contact:
1) James GLEESON b c1835 Ardagh, Co.Longford, d 12 Nov 1879 Keenagh, Co. Longford, m 13 Apr 1860 Maria COYLE, Keenagh, Co. Longford
2) Mortimer GLEESON b 1861 etc ... (birth, death, marriage details)
3) Abigail GLEESON b 1890 ... (as above)
4) Francis GLEESON b 1914 … as above, but not including dates for a) births <100 years ago, b) marriages <75 years ago, or c) deaths <50 years ago
Researcher: (insert your initials here)
Your email address: (use AT instead of @)
DNA Kit numbers: (insert the last 4 numbers of your DNA kit numbers)
Link to your online tree:  

To respect privacy and confidentiality, the following limitations are recommended:
  • no birth dates if less than 100 years 
  • no marriage dates if less than 75 years 
  • no death dates if less then 50 years 
  • no living people (but you can use initials, or "father" / "grandmother" / "me" etc if you wish) 

If you are researching your Gleason line, you should search for your earliest Gleason ancestor below to see if someone is already researching your particular line. The Researcher's name or email address is included in many pedigrees in case you want to contact them. As this is a public forum, email addresses should have the @ sign removed, and more recent generations are included at the Researcher's discretion.

Please note that the previous Patriarchs Page on is no longer functioning as the website closed down in June 2018. However, the pages from that website have been saved and the information that was on the Patriarchs Page has been copied and pasted below. Note that the red G numbers below refer to specific ID numbers that we use in the project as a shorthand to identify those project members who have done a Y-DNA test (rather than using their entire FTDNA kit number).

Lineage I

Lineage I pedigrees are maintained by Project Administrator Judy Gleason Claassen on a new dedicated website here ...

Below is my own pedigree as an example of what you will find on the Patriarchs Page on the DNA Project website. A notable difference is the inclusion of a different identification number, namely G21 at the end of the entry. This identifies the participant in the DNA Project whose DNA is representative of that particular family.

    2. Thanks Kris. Can you get a male Gleason relative to do the Y-DNA-37 test? It would help determine the country of origin of your Gleeson line, and probably which county too.

    3. Unfortunately I don't know any but will keep looking.

  13. Hi--

    I'm posting my Gleeson info here, since I have no way of completing a Y-chromosome DNA test. The known male Gleesons in my line are 4 generations back, and their descendants are (as yet) unknown to me.

    Although I've tested autosomal DNA with Ancestry and 23andme, I've not used FTDNA at all, so I guess I'm sort of out of luck with this group.

    My line of Gleeson/Gleasons is fairly prolific in Rhode Island, in the Berkeley, Cumberland area. Hugh's family all left Bansha/Ballyglasheen in 1895 to join his daughter who moved there a bit earlier (perhaps 1885). Most worked in the cotton mills in that area of the Blackstone Valley.

    2. Hi, Maggie! Looks like we have a common ancestor in Mortimer Gleeson. My branch of the family descends from his son James(1835-1918)who came to the U.S. in 1868 and worked as a stonemason in Brooklyn, New York, and Jersey City, New Jersey. Several descendants have completed DNA tests. Would enjoy comparing notes!

  49. RE: William (Wiley) Elias Glisson b1816 GA; d1887 GA, Short hand Code: R-A13119 Kit: 411177
    I hesitated to bother you because I am not a member of this group, but I saw my great great grandfather’s name on your pages and nearly hyperventilated because we have been trying to determine the identity of his father on and have gotten nowhere in spite of hundreds of hours of research and your research was the first I found on a prestigious site that I knew I could count on the data, if only I knew how to use it.
    My mom and dad spent the last 20 years of their life together trying to solve the mystery. Dad passed and mom is now in a nursing home. I am desperately trying to finish the quest that she and dad were unable to complete. I took a DNA test and have a tree at: Anyone who might help me give this gift to my precious 91 yr. old mom, I would be so grateful. She lost her husband, broke her hip twice a month later, had to sell her home, moved into an apartment, then lost everything there to Hurricane Harvey…but she still smiles all the time and thanks God for her blessings. We lost our home too and were displaced for a year and a half, but my cousin gave me a 6 month subscription to Ancestry thinking the research would help distract me from all our negative life events. It would have, except I keep running into dead ends and tons of misinformation about Wiley. Could anyone give me any hints? Regardless, thanks for your wonderful site (even if I don’t understand it). Donna Guidry dguidry AT is the best way to reach me.
