I am a descendant of Uriah Tippie (1759).I recently began a Tippie surname DNA project at family tree dna. The web address is: www.familytreedna.com/public/tippie The project is open to anyone who wants to join, however only Tippie males will carry the Tippie Y Chromosome from father to son. My goal is to find family connections, and to prove relationship to Uriah. The DNA kits are usually $149, but if you join the group they give a discount and the cost is $99.00. I wanted to do this because I have only three male Tippie's left in my line.
