Godbey DNA Project

As an introduction, I run the Godbey DNA Project at http://www.familytreedna.com/public/godby

DNA has been used in genealogical research since 2000.

Of the four sets of DNA results so far, all match and demonstrate without a doubt that John & William Godbey b. 1750's in Caroline Co., VA are brothers. The Godbeys of Pulaski/Casey Co., KY and Southwest VA & WV descend from these two brothers.

I'm happy to answer any questions regarding DNA or the Project.

Godbey Family History Blog

To aid Godbey researchers I've opened this family history Blog.

Feel free to post anyting related to Godbey Family Genealogy.
