Raymond, by all means we want to share and compare our information and understand variant spellings of names. Please let us know how we can do this. The person representing Kit #17641 says they descend from Emmanuel Conn, born about 1809 in Maryland. I am sure they will want to communicate with you. I will give them your e-mail address. Most CONN researchers believe their lines originated in Ireland and Scotland.

It is my understanding that we are notified of matching Y-DNA markers, no matter what the surname, when the donors have agreed to release information. When I click on Kit #17641's "Match Y-DNA Page" on FTDNA's page, no match comes up for him, but the following message appears: "Only people who sent us signed release forms are eligible to be listed here." Is it possible, Raymond, that you didn't send FTDNA a signed release form? If not, you might want to send one now.

Our group looks forward to working with you.

My name is Raymond Coon and I am the group administrator for the "Coon/Kuhn/etc." Y-DNA group at FamilyTreeDNA.

Through Y-Search I have found that a member of your group (17641) is a 12 out of 12 marker match for me (12259). Apparently this match did not come up in FamilyTreeDNA's database because I had not listed Conn as a name of interest and apparently you had not listed Coon as a name of interest. My ancestry is believed to be German and apparently so is that of 17641.

There is another group at FamilyTreeDNA called the Counts group. Among the variations they are interested in is Koontz, Coonts, and similar names.

The "Counts" and "Coon" groups have jointly agreed to share results for posting between groups in order to serve our ultimate purposes, i.e., to find genetic matches. This, of course, is with the permission of each individual member. No pesonal contact or other personal information is given, only the numbers from the test results and the kit number for the test.

Do you think your group would be interested in a similar arrangement?
