Our Official Greathouse Surname DNA Project
« on: May 21, 2005, 04:51:58 AM »
Greathouse Cousins,

I  have good news for those wanting to participate in our Greathouse Surname DNA project. As you may know, members of the Greathouse Cousin Network (GCN) have asked the board of directors to set up and administer an official DNA project, as a project of Greathouse Point and the GCN.

I am excited to report that our project is now accepting participants. We have selected DNA Heritage (DNAH), http://www.dnaheritage.com , as our official provider for the testing and analysis of our participants DNA samples.

You can read more about our choice of provider and join our Greathouse DNA Project at http://www.greathousedna.us .

We hope to maximize our information by using our extensive data base in conjunction with the DNA project.

We know Greathouse Point and the GCN has a lot of credibility in the genealogy community and we are working to protect the privacy and trust placed in Greathouse Point and our board of directors. Your information will not be used for anything except this specific project without your explicit permission.

The whole project will be administered by the GCN's board of directors, with our new director, Sandy Taylor, serving as the Surname Project Administrator for our Greathouse DNA Project at DNAH. This will ensure that the highest level of integrity is maintained at all times.

If you would like more information or want to discuss how you might benefit from or aid our DNA project, please email me at rick@greathouse.us
