Our goal for this new COOPER surname site is to provide current and complete information on Y- DNA matches (y Results) and family trees (Pedigree) to help members in their family history research.
As the largest DNA COOPER surname group with 278 members as of 1-31-11, we encourage new members to join and help fill in the gaps and missing links we all have.
In the Pedigree section, we have the family trees of 72 members, with valuable detail and in most all cases a contact name and email address for further queries.
Under y Results, we have 255 member’s y DNA results:
• 38 lineage groups with 2 or more Y- DNA matches: 170 members or 67% of members tested.
• 85 un-matched individuals, potentially each a separate lineage group.
• 80% of the 255 y-dna tests are at 25 markers or greater, and can be used to define lineage groups.
Finally, we have a volunteer team who are interested in helping anyone with their COOPER family research, so do post your questions to this forum or email one of us
