About us

We are conducting the Kendall DNA Project. The project is open to all members or descendants of the Kendall, Kindle, Kindall families or any variant spelling. 

Any descendant of a Kendall (or variant) family is welcome to participate and join the Kendall DNA Project.  We recommend every member to complete the Family Finder test AND every male take the Y-DNA37 test. 

The primary focus of our project is as a surname study. The Y-chromosome only exists in males. It is passed from fathers-to-sons, virtually unchanged, for generations. If you are male and bear a Kendall variant surname, we suggest you take the Y-DNA37 (or greater) test.

We may consider allowing membership to persons who have taken only the Family Finder test if they email the administrator and share their lineages or have been invited to join.  All others will be removed from the study.

We require every member share their Kendall lineage.  Sharing documented lineages will make interpretations easier when a DNA match is located.

If you are interested in the DNA project or would like to learn more about the process, please review the FAQs at or contact me directly.

Thank you
Scott Kendall
