Any male Correll of whatever spelling, who was born with that surname.    However, if there is a family of grandfather, father and some sons, the most economical way to start is for the oldest man to be Atested.@   There is less chance of a spontaneous mutation because there will be fewer generations back to a presumable MRCA.   However, all generations are welcome to participate. When the results are returned, there will be time to add other folks to the project.   Some of us may find that it will be useful to have our samples analyzed using many more markers.   



Becoming a member of the Correll Project is easy.   The steps to participate in the Correll Surname Project are shown below.

I will be notified that you are joining our group.

C                     You act as an Intermediary, by being the conduit between the prospective Participant and me, the Project Coordinator.   Start by printing material from this Web site, and any of the pages of the Family Tree DNA site that you feel will be of value to the prospective Correll Surname Project participant.   When the potential participant decides to participate or has questions, email me to indicate his participation or to get answers to questions.
