The goal of the Vincent DNA Project is to compile all known families by earliest ancestor; all Vincent research is welcome. In light of this goal, a long-standing effort for North American Vincents has been to connect with our European DNA cousins. As of June 2014, we have no knowledge of any European Vincent cousins proved by either DNA research or through normal paper trails. Contact the Vincent One-Name Study or a Vincent DNA Project administrator for more details. It is hoped that shared research will help individuals find their families and families find their branches and identify a common heritage. DNA testing is a tool to help find the areas in which we need to focus our research.
