Origins and History


New to Family History? Check out our Getting Started page. Check out House Of Names to investigate the origins of the Semken surname or get a copy of the Semken family Crest (a great gift idea!).


Sometimes you can run into a brick wall in your tree and you just don't have enough evidence to make that next step back in time. A DNA test can sometimes help to make a link to a particular family name if you find you share common DNA with people who have the same or similar surnames as each other. If you are lucky then you may get a match within a few generations and discover some Semken ancestors. Additionally, the modern DNA test can give you a breakdown of your ethnic mix - you may be surprised at the results!
