EDMONDSON & Variant Sp. Surname Y-DNA Project

To All EDMONDSON & Variant Spellings Males:

Have you reached a dead end and cannot find any documents on your ancestors?
Not a clue to be found? Wondering if you are related to another family with
the same surname?

Science has given us the ultimate tool to solve these dilemmas - DNA
Testing. This simple test of swabbing the inside of our cheek has the
ability to help us find our "cousins" by comparing the results of as few as
two males still carrying the name. Males are able to see if another
male is a descendant from their direct paternal line.

The 25-marker test yields the world's tightest parameters to the Most Recent
Common Ancestor (MRCA). The 25-marker kit is $169 + tax as the initial test
This test looks at the DNA in the Y-chromosome within males. This is one of
the sex chromosomes and is responsible for maleness. All males have one in
each cell and copies are passed down (virtually) unchanged from FATHER to
SON each generation.

Here is a link to the test kit to see what it looks like & instructions:

http://www.familytreedna.com/kit.html

Now, in order to find these links in our families, we have to have the
volunteers to come forward and order a kit.

Please help us prove scientifically how our other lines connect?
We are hoping for other male volunteers to come forward and help make the
discovery with the DNA testing which cannot be argued with. IT WILL TELL US
THE ULTIMATE TRUTH.

Please agree and sign up:

Select "Recruitment Page."

You will be given a test kit number & password, your name will never be used....so your identity will not be revealed, unless you give your written permission.

Thank you,
Candace Campise
