1. Establish the Project objectives The Y chromosome is passed from father to son unchanged, except for a mutation about every 500 generations. Testing the Y chromosome will provide you with a genetic finger print consisting of 12 or 25 numbers. By comparing this finger print to others with your surname, you can determine if they are related. The objectives of Surname Projects vary. Here are a few: Identify others who are related Prove or disprove theories regarding ancestors Solve brick walls in your research Determine a location for further research Validate existing research Often a Surname Project has multiple objectives, and the objectives may even change over the life of the project. Y-chromosome DNA analysis offers exciting opportunities to learn more about early Couch Descendants. You too can participate, I have arranged with FTDNA to offer a 12-locus DNA analysis for a reduced rate of $99.00 per test kit for those who wish to participate. We need to get 6 male Couch's to join in for this reduced rate.
