DNA testing

The Lyon(s) Family Association is cooperating with the FTDNA testing site to study the DNA of Lyon(s) descendants in order to attempt to discover common ancestors. The goal of the project is to see if DNA testing can discover a link between the early Lyon(s) Ancestors or Progenitors. Particularly useful is the testing of men named Lyon(s). Combined with traditional genealogical research, the results can be compared to other Lyon(s) men. Using genetics and the markers on the Y chromosome, similar patterns may become clear. We urge Lyon(s) men to submit a test sample to Family Tree DNA for the 67 or 111 marker test. Learn about our ongoing project and other topics related to Lyon(s) DNA.
