invite to participate in the Keach DNA Surname Project

Join the Keach Project



The Keach Surname Project is open to anyone with the unique surname Keach. In addition, anyone with the following similar sounding surnames are also welcome: Keech, Keachie, Keetch. This Project's goal is two-fold. Firstly, to determine if the different Keach lines share a common male ancestor. Secondly, to determine if other spelling variations are related.

Surnames in Project:
Keach, Keachie, Keech, Keetch


Since a Surname Project in essence traces members of a family that share a common surname, and females (a) don't carry their father's Y-DNA, and (b) acquire a new surname by the way of marriage, in order to be relevant to the Surname Project, the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's father's...). The test to be ordered is either the Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25 or Y-DNA37, and females should look for a brother or cousin with that surname to be tested. Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of this test cannot be tied to the Surname Project.
