The DeGraaf - DeGraff (spellings there of) Surname Genealogy Group & DNA Project was initiated to: identify and group our family lineages using the help of science, discover and meet distant cousins, and share family history. Individuals interested in our ancestry and using genetic testing to assist our research efforts are encouraged to join.
If you are a male with one of the included surnames, you can participate in the Y-DNA project. This project study is using the DNA test that looks at a portion of the DNA called the Y chromosome. The Y chromosome is unique to males and can be used to identify one's direct paternal line. For this reason, females cannot contribute directly but can find a male relative (father, brother, cousin, etc) to be tested as a representative of her line.
