McElyea DNA Project Interest
Posted by: Vicki Sinderson (ID *****9099) Date: April 17, 2005 at 10:03:29

Several of the McElyea descendants have been discussing the possibility of coordinating a McElyea DNA project. We are interested in knowing how many of you are interested in participating. There is a cost involved and only males with the name McElyea are eligible to take it. If you are female, you can persuade one of your McElyea male relatives to participate. Females might also want to contribute to the cost.

If you would like to know more about it, go to

The following is a list of the some of the things that DNA testing may accomplish. DNA analysis has the potential to:

determine if two people are related

find out if others with your surname are related

determine if two people descend from the same ancestor

provide an approximate time frame for the common ancestor

confirm a family tree

find others to whom you are related

determine a possible point of origin for your surname

prove or disprove a research theory

determine if other surnames are variants of your surname

provide clues or solve brick walls

identify a location for further research

verify ancestors’ migration

provide clues about ethnic origin

Please let us know if you are interested by responding to this query.
