Your interest and offer is very appreciated.

The Y Chromosome used in DNA test of interest to surname studies, is only passed from father to son. For this reason maternal DNA material is no value or use in this type of study. It is a male only project.

Now if you had the Y Chromosome result for her father, that would be of great service. We do have several Keanes south Clare/Kerry area and it is very possible that a match would be found.

The McCain DNA project has a large group of Keane, Cain, Kane, Kain, Keen, etc., surname men who have been tested. These names can be with an O or Mc prefix or without. Todate four large groups have been identified. Just visit the McCain DNA project web site to find out more.
