So far three men have had Y-DNA tests done for the Comstock DNA Project at FamilyTree DNA.They are all descendants of Samuel Comstock [1628-1657] of Rhode Island, probable son of the immigrant William Comstock who died in New London, CT, about 1683.As would be expected they are very close matches - two are perfect matches at 37 markers, the third has only a single variation.
I have a donor willing to pay for a test for a male who still has the surname Comstock and can demonstrate his lineage, with some certainty, back to any of the other sons of William Comstock: Daniel [1630-1683] who married Palthiah Elderkin John [1624-bef 1680] who married Abigail Chappel or the supposed son Christopher [1635-1702], who married Hannah Platt, and about whom there is some dispute.
There is currently a sale at FamilyTree DNA with prices effective until midnight December 31st, if you order the test as part of a surname project.
Please understand the test is simply a swab of the inside of a cheek - completely painless.The kit comes with everything needed including the envelope to return the test to FamilyTree DNA.The test is confidential, identified by a Kit number - you have access to your own private website with your results and your own password.The results are posted within the Project only by the Kit number.This DNA test for genealogy cannot be used for other purposes - it is completely different from DNA tests for medical or investigative purposes.
