Keach Family DNA
February 2010: The Keach DNA Project can now except female Keach DNA ! Family Tree DNA has recently launched their newest genealogy breakthough --- Family Finder. The motto for this new test is “Sex doesn't matter anymore". To borrow a quote from a recent e-mail announcing this new DNA test, "Family Finder can look for close relationships along all ancestral lines. You may now match to male AND FEMALE cousins from any of your family lines within five generations. The science behind it uses linked blocks of DNA across the 22 autosomal chromosomes and matches them between two people. Based on this concept, our bioinformatics team has worked extensively to develop the calculations that would tell you the closeness of the relationship. The possibilities to find matches abound:
Aunts & Uncles, Parents and Grandparents
Half siblings and 1st cousins
2nd, 3rd, and 4th cousins
Possibly 5th cousins and beyond!"
I will post a link for a short video from Family Tree DNA experts that explain HOW THIS IS POSSIBLE within a few weeks. Right now you can use the search feature on the home page of Family Tree DNA to locate this video and any other information you may want on the subject of DNA testing ! : )

I have announced the Keach Surname DNA Project's website to various Message Boards. Feel free to tell others about this opportunity. I have sent many snail mail letters of invitation to many Keach addresses in the US, UK and Australia. Some individuals responded, but the percentage was much smaller than I had hoped.
