Field, Wagoner, Hoover and Curtis Genealogy
This website contains information on the families of the Curtis/s Family
Society’s DNA Project Coordinator, Al Field. In addition to Al's other family
surnames, it contains over 8400 Curtis
names, descendants of several distinct Curtis families who came
to America in the late 17th and 18th centuries. These families are often
characterized as "New Jersey and Southern Curtises," being distinct from
 and unrelated to the more numerous and better-documented New
England Curtis families."

The society maintains a Curtis-Curtiss Y-DNA group project (i.e., database) on Family Tree DNA (familytreedna.com). We have 482 members currently in the project. If you have taken an FTDNA Y-DNA test and are of a Curtis family, we encourage you to join the group and have your DNA test added to the project. Contact Project Administrator Al Field at e-mail: [email protected] if you have questions. 

This site is dedicated to the genealogy of all persons with or descended from the surnames of Curtiss, Curtis, Curtice, Curteis, Cortesse, Courtis and other spellings. It is also dedicated to the descendants of the Curtiss-Curtis-Curtice immigrant ancestors who came to the New World. Special mention is made of the Curtiss ancestors from Nazeing, Essex County, England and their descendants of Stratford, CT and Roxbury, MA who founded the origins of this Society in 1939.
