The Cave Surname Project
The Cave DNA project welcomes all participants, particularly those whose surname is CAVE. We encourage you to join us today. Our project has been running for three years and we are getting exciting results. Up to now we have 58 participants. Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information about the origin and evolution of the surname. The surnames in this DNA Project are also researched as part of the Cave One-Name Study. The significant research and information about the surnames and associated family trees can be found at: http://www.cave-fhs.org.uk The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you are male and descended from a female Cave, then you may find a male cousin. Look to him to join this project. If you are a female, please find a male CAVE in your family tree to participate. We encourage males who order a Y DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order less markers, you can upgrade later though this costs a little more. By taking part in the Cave Project you take advantage of the group rates. Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. You would order a mtDNA test. If you are resident in the UK, and wish to participate, I (the project Administrator) hold kits to send out at the offer price of £85.00. if you are outside the UK please contact Family Tree direct and join the project in that way.
