BELL DNA Project
Any male with the BELL surname is welcome to join our project. Females may also participate in our studies by using a living, male, close relative (with the BELL surname) as a surrogate for the Y-DNA testing. Females may also participate in a mtDNA test.For full participation, you must complete a descendants chart, or a list of your known ancestry (to the best of your ability), and submit it to our webmaster. This should include dates and place of birth, dates and place of marriage (and spouse name), dates and place of death, for as many generations as possible, to assist in analysis. If you have no knowledge of your ancestry, it does not exclude you from testing to possibly learn your ancestry!It is possible to order a test kit without fully participating in our study. If this is what you desire, the above requirement does not apply. You will receive match notifications, but no analysis or any other benefits that follow full participation. You will only receive a certificate with your test results, and password access to the testing agency website. We will still add your results under our project privacy codes to our results web page, for you to see possible matches.
