The Meates, Meats, Mates DNA Project needs participants.
Scientists have discovered that a small portion of the Y Chromosome, found only in males, is passed from father to son, virtually unchanged, except for a mutation about every 500 generations.By testing this small portion of the Y chromosome, it can be determined whether two males are related, and approximately when they had a common ancestor. The application of this discovery to genealogy has introduced a new field called Genetic Genealogy.
The Meates Meats Mates DNA Project was established to take advantage of this application of science to genealogy. In our reseach, the paper trail becomes spotty, and eventually ends, still leaving the question of "who is related to whom?". Y-chromosome DNA testing should supply the answers that we seek.
