I wanted to let you know that we have established a KELLEY/KELLY Surname DNA Test Project to help us break through those Brick Walls that have so many of us stumped. We just started in February of 2005 and we already have 17 Participants. Six of the participants (3 pair) have discovered proven links to common ancestors that they did not know existed.
We just got the Website operating this week. The address is: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~kellydnaproject/index.htm
Go to our website and see what the possibilities are. If you have a living Male Kelley relative I would encourage you to get him to participate. The sample is given by just wiping a swab in your mouth. I am attaching a Word File which gives you a little more information. There are more details on our Webpage. Best Regards, Raymond Kelly Coordinator KELLEY/KELLY DNA Test Project
