Since our first DNA Study is a Y-chromosome study that tests and compares the DNA of males for relatedness, there may be a number of researchers who would like to identify subjects to be tested who would do so on their behalf or because they have similar research interests. Also, there may be lineages with no representation for which there could be significant findings that may have a widespread affect on the family history assumptions of persons tracing many COMBS-COOMBS &c. branches. In cases like these, this list will facilitate the identification of test subjects needed for establishing specific “lineage genetic profiles”. For further information and to avoid repetition, a reference to our Virtual Archive lineage "snapshots" will be noted on the table below, when available. Researchers requesting assistance in finding persons who will consider testing should provide this information to the Project Administrator. Once people are willing to be tested on behalf of another, any understandings for paying for the testing will need to be worked out between the researcher and the persons being tested. Any information to be included in this part of the study should be directed to the Project Administrator.
