Collins DNA surname project

I am helping coordinate a project that will help determine how the various Collinses who came into Georgia and Alabama in the 1800s are related (or not related) to each other. We can do this through a simple DNA test, and we are hoping we can get a descendant of James W. Collins (b. 1781) who settled in Alabama to participate.

We already have participants from a number of diffent Collins families. Knowing whether a Collins ancestor is related -- or not -- to other Collinses can save a genealogist years of frustration and wasted effort of barking up the wrong tree and point us in the right direction.

Participating in the study is literally as simple as rubbing a Q-tip inside your cheek. We need only one male member of the entire James W. Collins family. He can be from age one to age 100, but he MUST be a direct male descendant (still bearing the Collins name). There will be no cost to the volunteer, since I will gladly pay the cost of the test for anyone I feel would add significantly to the project. The results are posted on the Relative Genetics website, and will be gladly shared with the participants and others who are interested.

If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, please contact me at:

Thank you.
