The Holcombe/Holcomb DNA Project has been established to allow interested parties to use Y-chromosome DNA testing as a tool in their family history research.

Participation in the project is welcome from anyone of Holcombe/Holcomb descent, however the name is spelled.

Since Y-chromosomes are passed from father to son, the donor of the DNA for testing must be a male of Holcombe descent in the paternal line. Females and males of Holcombe descent through maternal lines may participate in the project only by having a male relative of Holcombe descent in the paternal line supply the DNA sample for testing. Further information on DNA testing can be found at http://www.familytreedna.com To participate in this project, please follow the link: “How to Participate”

Please also see webpage on the Sponsors program that we have started to support and fund testing of key Holcombes who would not otherwise be tested.
