If you want to see if you are genetically connected to other Rogers, check out FTDNA.com , the 12 marker test at $49 (currently) will get you to your "Haplogroup" a DNA type you will share will all other direct male (father, son, father son) descendants of your line. And, may connect you to genetic cousins you did not know existed. You don't have to be of predominantly European descent to match other males in your line. For example - Les - if your YDNA line came from a European ancestor, your YDNA will be the same as others from the same YDNA line regardless of apparent ethnicity. My family is predominantly of European origin - but you may be a close YDNA cousin. Until you test, there is no way of knowing.
I am a Rogers that dropped the Ro"d"gers when my family came to New York, but our family is of German descent. I have found several places saying it is an English name derived from German language. But nowhere am I seeing German decent Rogders, or a history of the Surname. Any one have anything on that?
