The Callen Surname Project
Any male born with the surname Callen, Callan, Callin, or other variations is invited to join. Also any male who suspects his surname is really Callen or a variation thereof. Since the main purpose is to test the DNA of the Y chromosome which is passed from father to son(s), only living males can be part of the Y-DNA project. Female researchers may sponsor their father, brother, cousin or spouse, so long as he is a male with the surname Callen, Callan, Callin, or other variation.We will compare test results of the various donors to establish lines of descent. When two or more donors Y-DNA matches, it is proof positive they descended from a common ancestor. The ancestor's name is not known, but the lab can predict how far back he lived. This allows the various lines to compare research notes to zero in on the common ancestor, or at least have new avenues of research.
