Is this open to descendants of Loyalists who remained in the USA, or
only to those who removed to Canada?
The brothers, Timothy, and Joseph Perkins, of New Haven, CT, and
Wilkes/Ashe Counties, NC, were Loyalists in the Revolutionary War.
Some other relatives removed to Canada from VT and CT. We have tested
lines from both brothers and from a brother of their father.

> I am pleased to announce the establishment of a DNA testing project whose aim is to identify the Y-chromosome DNA signature of each Loyalist who served his country during the War of the American Revolution by using Y-STR testing of documented descendants in the male line, and further to identify his deep ancestral roots in ancient times via Y-SNP testing. Cross validation will be required such as testing the documented descendants of two sons of the Loyalist. An example can be seen at http://www.davidkfaux.org/YOUNGHomePage.html. A mtDNA Project for Loyalist direct female line lineages will emerge after the Y-DNA work is underway.

The testing will be supervised by world renown population geneticists Dr. James F. Wilson and Dr. Gianpiero Cavalleri.
