The Logan DNA Project
"Within the Logan DNA project we will perform a comprehensive study of relationships
between various families with the Logan (and variant) surnames, with
initial emphasis (Phase I) on those present in America Prior to 1800.
As the study unfolds, we hope to expand to include lines from later time periods.
Standard genealogical research methods will be supplemented with Y-DNA testing to identify
relationships not found in written and oral records and provide support or
disproof of other male descendency relationships."

Why should I participate?
As a participant in the Logan DNA
Project, you are on the forefront of Genealogical Research. Although
DNA research in general is a new and budding technology, using DNA with
genealogy is in it's infancy. Some day, just as we talk about our
pioneer ancestors crossing America in covered wagons, your great
grandchildren and their descendants will call you a pioneer in DNA
No Needles, no blood test, just a
simple cheek scraping with a soft comb.
Only $169 for a 25-marker test if done through this surname project.
Testing has the potential of shaving
years off of your research
and helping break through your "brickwalls".
Why should I NOT participate?
If you don't want to know if
your family history is wrong.
