I am seeking to establish a link - using yDNA - between my father and any of the several McTighe lineages in New York State, Pennsylvania and Connecticut from about 1850 - the present.My father was born with the surname McTighe in 1946 in New York State.
I offer to sponsor (I pay half) the cost of a genealogical DNA test to any male person with the McTighe surname who can document on paper his descent from any of the McTighe lineages listed at the end of this message.
Important: I offer this only to MALE MCTIGHE descendants.Anyone who descends from via a female McTighe would not be useful for this study.
If you have a McTighe lineage that is not listed below and did spend time in North Eastern PA, Central and Southern NYS or Connecticut and feel that you may be useful for this study, please contact me.
If you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com
Thanks, Johnna St. Clair
