Welcome to the Ogan One-Name Study

The Ogan One-Name Study

The Ogan surname is registered with the Guild of One-Name Study (GOONS). See Ogan One-Name Study. The surname is found in many locations throughout the world, but is not all that common. There are a variety of spellings, and this project intends to cover them all.

The OGAN One-Name Study will research these variants, but will add any information for the surname (any spelling) to this blog. Other variants will be studied as they are located.

.......OGEN, OGIN, and OOGAN

You can aid the goals of the Ogan One-Name-Study by submitting your Ogan information, pedigree or any Ogan records for any spelling to me at: Please include sources so others can locate the material, if needed. The information will be placed here without the dates and locations of living people.

The Ogan DNA Project

The Ogan One-Name Study has a related OGAN DNA Project which has proved that, in some cases, the variants OGEN and OGIN are related. My mother indicated that the name was O'OGAN before reaching the United States, and hopefully this can be tested.

The OGAN DNA Project at Family Tree DNA includes:


Visit the OGAN DNA Project

Men with the surname Ogan (any spelling) who take a Y-chromosome DNA test or any male or female who wishes to take the Family Finder test are accepted into the project. If you are a male without the surname or a female who descends from an Ogan (any spelling), you can request to be on the Ogan DNA Project email list where you will be notified about the project results.

If you wish to test with the Ogan DNA Project, read the information on the site and email me, if you have further questions.

Watch this blog for Ogan records of all type, including those outside of the U.S.
