Family Trees by DNA? Volunteers?

Everton's Genealogical Helper magazine, July/August 2000 has an article about the Molecular Genealogy Research Group at BYU University in Provo, Utah. They are in the process of building a database of people who have donated their 4-generation pedigree charts and 2 TBSP of blood. They are collecting the blood at BYU (or by mail right now for people out of that area) but will be going out to other areas of the country over the next years. If there are 100 to 150 descendants of a family in one area, they will come to your area sooner. They suggest contacting your county Genealogical Society to check in with them and determine if there are enough folks in the area who are interested in participating. They have detailed information at their website: "http://molecular-genealogy.byu.edu".

Are there 100-150 descendants of the Granville/Orange/Durham Cos Tilleys, Roberts, Lunsfords, Cozarts, Hesters, etc?
If we can wait 6 years, they may have done our genealogy for us!
