In 2013, three gentlemen appeared as genetic matches during Y-DNA testing. At the 67 marker level, these three men are related with a genetic distance of only “1”. Wives and a daughter of these men began working together with the goal of finding the connections. This DNA surname project was started in January 2014 as part of that effort.
