This DNA study was started in the second half of 2001. Since 1976, the Graves Family Association has been gathering and publishing information on all the various families of Graves, Greaves, and other variant spellings of the name in the world. The advent of DNA testing has provided a new tool to verify existing genealogies and to show relationships where documentation is not available.
