About us

DNA data is sought to help clarify the various lines of Kenyons (and others, such as Kinyon, Kinion, Kinyoun, Kynion, etc.). Numerous Kenyon lines have been identified in the US. Y-DNA testing has confirmed a link between some of the Kenyon lines to those with a common ancestor in England. Testing also suggests the possibility that there may be more than one Kenyon line in England. Further testing will help to clarify these lines and assist in helping people break through brick walls. The project has at least one success story where Y-DNA played a major role in solving a long-standing brick wall. Participants are sought not only from the US, but also the British Isles, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere.
