Description: The Keach Surname Project is open to anyone with the unique surname Keach. In addition, anyone with the following similar sounding surnames are also welcome: Keech, Keachie, Keetch. This Project's goal is two-fold. Firstly, to determine if the different Keach lines share a common male ancestor. Secondly, to determine if other spelling variations are related.
Surnames in Project: Keach, Keachie, Keech, Keetch
Since a Surname Project in essence traces members of a family that share a common surname, and females (a) don't carry their father's Y-DNA, and (b) acquire a new surname by the way of marriage, in order to be relevant to the Surname Project, the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's father's...). The test to be ordered is either the Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25 or Y-DNA37, and females should look for a brother or cousin with that surname to be tested. Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of this test cannot be tied to the Surname Project.
