Families finding Families through DNA
The Project History: |
The CAOA members began their journey searching for ancestors in the late 1970's. The results from the research established 200+ different men as the oldest known ancestor for their lines. The paper trail evidence tying these men to each other has not been found. In some cases circumstantial evidence suggests a tie to another line while in other cases there is not enough to say "Yes, this man's parents are . . . "
The Project Goals:
Identify Ancestors by DNA Groups (Haplogroup)and then by DNA Types (Haplotypes)
Compare the results against the documentation that exists
Do further research to link together family lines within the same Haplotype
Break down brick walls
Confirm the existing documentation in the archives
The Project Requirements:
Any person male or female who is interested in helping to further the project goals can join the project.
Males: Those eligible for DNA testing must be a direct descendant of an
ancestor who has a variation of the Castor-Kuster surname.
Females: Although females do not have the required y chromosome for testing, they can still participate. If you are a Castor-Kuster descendant or a relative of a Castor-Kuster descendant, find a direct descendant male relative willing to be tested.
Everyone: Provide an ancestor chart as far back as possible.
Everyone: Volunteer to help with the project by contacting the project
coordinator, who has plenty of jobs that need to be done.
|The CAOA DNA Project is open to any person who is a direct descendant of any Castor...Custer ancestor.
