About us

Hello Mr. O'Driscoll. Fáilte romhat! And welcome to men with old West Cork ancestry if you are a CADOGAN, MINIHANE, or one of the many other historically related regional names DRISCOLLS used. This is a yDNA surname, genealogy and history project for men with these last names. Female relatives, ancestry DNA autosomal transfer or FTDNA Family Finder testers can enroll an eligible male relative with a suitable last name if they themselves are not eligible. Every Driscoll researcher - eligible or not - should join our mailing list.

FUTURE PROJECT MEMBERS. CLICK HERE TO JOIN: You'll need a Y DNA test of 37, 67, or 111 markers. Because over 80% of our project members fall within R-CTS4466 or I-PF4135, 67 or 111 markers is recommended. Email Susan if you have questions. Check our FAQ first. Click "Get Preapproved" WHEN YOU ARE READY to purchase a Y test or have one aleady.

If you see NO after clicking 'Get Preapproved', visit WhatIsMyIPAddress, write down your IP address in dotted decimal format, and email Susan with that data.
