Going to St. Louis this month.
My WEST Family Surname Group # 5 will hold their annual family reunion this year in St. Louis. Those in attendance will be related to each other proven by matches in their y-DNA. Many of us have found the documentation of records to confirm the y-DNA results. In many cases it was the y-DNA that confirmed the documentation.
Our group used FamilyTreeDNA for our testing... Group #5 is still the largest of 39 groups of West families with 19 individuals. Below is a table of the current status of the West Surname Project.
|Number of Y-DNA participants||339|
|Test kits returned||311|
|Y-DNA results posted to web page||310|
|Number of Family groups identified by DNA||39|
