About us


The COSBY DNA Project is primarily a Y-DNA project and is open to anyone who has the surname COSBY or it’s variants (such as COZBY) in their family tree. The project is also open to those that are close Y-DNA matches who are not able to identify their male line. The aim of this project is to identify and connect family members using DNA. If you have tested at another company and wish to join us, please contact the Project Administrator about transferring your results in. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Cosby one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research, and the associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, or contacting the Project Administrator.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you believe there is a Cosby or variant in your direct male line, although you have a different surname, you are also welcome to participate. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

We encourage males to order a Y-DNA test for 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. To explore your direct female line, you would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Full Sequence test.

To find matches across all branches of your family tree, you want to order Family Finder, which is an autosomal DNA test. To maximize the benefit of this test, researching all branches of your family tree back 4-5 generations is valuable. This test works for both males and females.

The results of the DNA tests mentioned, Y DNA, mtDNA, and Family Finder, contain no personal information, and you will match or be a close match to those to whom you are related. This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry.
