I am hoping to find people, once there is a project.
I have a male cousin I can test, but want to find a second person, first,
so that we have something to compare.
I've already got myself and my dad tested in the Davenport project. So now
I thought I'd start a project for my mother's last name.
But most people will just surf the site, and if they don't find their
surname, they will just bail. But if they see the surname, they might
just sign up.
I'm investigating the websites for all my ancestors, but if there isn't
one, I'm not going to start one, except for my mother. The other surnames,
I'm going to leave it to others.
