About us

This is a yDNA surname project for men named DRISCOLL or a secondary Driscoll surname for men whose paternal line is from West Cork. Autosomal DNA tests and haplogroup results do not qualify. Female relatives, autosomal transfer or FTDNA Family Finder testers and other non-eligible relatives can Y test an eligible relative and enroll his kit in the project.

BEFORE CLICKING JOIN: Read the the project FAQ first to learn about eligibility, testing requirements, requirements for proper entry of the tester's name, access levels for the administrators, differences between FTDNA and the project website, differences between participation levels, and the availability of a DNA testing FAQ.

Then - either PROVIDE all the information below in your OWN text - OR - COPY the text below in the yellow box into a text pad application on your computer and complete the questions.

NOW CLICK JOIN. Then - PASTE YOUR COMPLETED TEXT into the join window where it says:

tell us what you know about the line that you are researching, and, if known, the name of the earliest known ancestor, date and location.

THANK YOU for this information!
