My FamilyTreeDNA Project Website Title
The initial portion of this project was intended to provide some experience and a database for comparison with results from an extended testing program. The results are quite encouraging in that the objectives have been met and some useful conclusions have been reached. The analysis has been completed on one hundred and sixty-three participants which have identified seventy-five distinct Cooper-lines. Already the test results have provided a focus for some traditional work, has "broken through brick-walls" and identified previously unknown relatives. In addition to these specific gains, the results support the general conclusion that most men named Cooper have roots in England. Further tests can be expected to expand and refine these general conclusions.
