Welcome to the
Kent Family & DNA Project
Active KENT family researchers have been aware that there are and have been many KENT families in the US (and beyond) and it’s difficult to ascertain whether they relate to one another, or, if unknown circumstances have led them to work, live or migrate together without any family ties. We are all fortunate enough to live in an era that we can combine traditional ‘paper-trail’ genealogy with genetic genealogy to determine close family connections, and equally important, to help us avoid false connections so we can hone in on where our personal time and resources should be focused.
All KENT researchers (male or female) are a welcome addition to this project, alhough it cannot be understated how important it is for KENT males to volunteer by taking a yDNA test since the the results can solve genealogy questions that are centuries old (for the participant or for other researchers!). To date, sixty KENT males have generously contributed to the Y-chromosome study and distinct branches are beginning to form at our "Kent Patriarchs" page.
