DNA-Is the “Gene” in Genealogy
Have you hit a Brick Wall? Can’t find any documentation for that elusive ancestor?Are you related to another Coyne/Kilcoyne family?Genetic Genealogy is the new way to begin or add to your research.Questioned sources and possible assumptions in your lineage can be a tremendous waste of time and money.DNA testing is able to identify bad lines thus saving you precious hours or even years of research.
How Does It Work
What makes a male a male is the Y-Chromosome.We compare the DNA on this Y-chromosome with other Coyne/Kilcoyne’s.This Y-DNA is passed down from father to son, generation after generation.
How Can It Help Me?
Theoretically, two Coyne/Kilcoyne’s with a common ancestor should have the same or nearly the same Y-DNA.As the Results return, we will be able to place those Coyne/Kilcoyne’s into specific Lineages, thus showing who you are genetically related to and those you are not related to.
Who Can Test?
To participate you must be a male who was born with the surname Coyne, Kilcoyne, (or variant spelling) or believe that your direct male ancestry leads to a Coyne or Kilcoyne (name change, adoption etc.) with no female ancestors in direct line (father, grandfather, g-grandfather, etc.) If you are a non-Coyne or Kilcoyne male or female researcher you’ll need to find a male cousin, uncle, nephew, etc. who carries the Coyne or Kilcoyne surname and you can participate through that person.
How is the test performed?
A few days after ordering the test kit, you will receive a small package in the mail.It contains three small vials with preservation fluid, three “mini toothbrushes”, and easy to follow instructions.You scrape the inside of the cheek with each brush, place them into the vials, and drop the package in the mail.It’s that simple.No pain.No blood.
Can The Test Be Used For Any Non-Genealogical Purposes?
No.This DNA test will not uncover health problems nor can it be used for any identity profiling such as paternity, alimony, or anything legal.
Can I Pay For Another Persons Test?
Yes, 3rd party billing is available.
How Long Will It Take The Results To Be Processed?
From the time you return the test kit, it will take approximately 6-8 weeks.
