Sponsored Testing: We are currently seeking suitable Irish or Scottish candidates to sponsor for Y-dna testing.
Participation in Y-DNA testing for the purpose of genealogical research is
limited to male members of the line who carry the Henry name. Y-DNA is passed
from father to sons through many generations. This Y-DNA test is NOT the same test that is used for identification in criminal cases. Family members with different
surnames may wish to help sponsor the cost of a test for a father, brother, or
cousin. Testing the oldest family member available is the most valuable, as it means fewer generations where mutations can occur.
Participants will be asked to complete an information release form indicating what information may to be published on this web site:
name, e-mail, lineage, DNA results. The form will be e-mailed or mailed to each new participant.
Any Henry wishing to claim descent from Patrick Henry will need authorization
of his lineage from Cole Poindexter the genealogist at Red Hill, the Patrick Henry Memorial.

The Henry Surname Project has chosen the Family Tree DNA Service of Houston,
Texas because of the excellent reputation it has in the field.
Exact 37 marker matches indicate a common ancestor within about 7 generations. For the most valuable information, we recommend beginning with the 37 marker test.
Those choosing to begin with the 12 marker test may refine to 25, 37 or 67 marker tests at a later date, though the cost and waiting time will increase. Participants in this project are encouraged to begin with the more useful and cost effective 37 marker test, or the even the 67 marker test, if possible.
After joining the project, the participant will receive a testing kit in the
mail. The process involves scraping cells from the inside of the cheek and
returning the samples following the instructions that come with the kit.
The test samples are kept for a period of 25 years. Other tests may be ordered
during that time without providing further samples.
Group prices for Y-DNA Male tests for this project are:
12 Marker Y-DNA Test - Now only $49
There will be about a $4 shipping fee added to the price on each test. The lab also offers other types of DNA testing, which can be linked from the Join the Project page.
Donations in any amount may be made to the Henry General Fund and can be designated to be used for a particular participant or family group. Arrangments may be made with the project administrator.
