Free DNA tests/Collins/Collings

From ISOGG Wiki

< Free DNA tests‎ | Collins


The Collins project does not offer free tests unconditionally at DNA shows and no longer offers free Y37 scholarships.

However, the project will consider offering a Y upgrade scholarship from Y37 to an eligible man if his paternal line ancestry is from a project region of interest, and he can meet rigorous documentation requirements proving his ancestry back to the late 18th century/early 19th century or earlier.

Our paternal line origin geographic regions of interest are: The province of Munster in Ireland; Shropshire in the West Midlands, Cornwall, Devon and Somerset in Southwest England, Norfolk and Suffolk in Essex (East Anglia).

Our project email list is for those interested in Collins Y DNA. The name is ubiquitous in the British Isles and its diaspora and there are many different genetic origins. If you'd like to be kept informed of Y DNA test sale opportunities and Collins yDNA project news, contact the project administrator and you'll be placed on the list.
