Which DNA test did you do??
I had my Cousin take a 67 Marker, we have 4 67 Marker matches.
I originally ordered a 37 marker and a few months later upgraded to a 67 marker.
I just talked to my second cousin and she said her brother will take test. I have ordered it and had it shipped to him. How long does it take??? I will need help to figure it out when I get results. Thank you for your help. I did order the 67
That is wonderful, I just sent you a Welcome from the DNA Group.
It should take about a week for the Test to get to him, he then swabs his cheeks and drops it back in the Mail. A return envelope will be Included. It takes about 3-5 days to get to the Lab, when the Lab receives it you will get an e-mail with a Kit Number and Password. This will take you to your Homepage, you can track the Progress there, it usually takes about 4 weeks once the kit is back at the Lab.

Good Luck
Hello, My brother Robert Marion Edmondson did a DNA, and the surname Morris is in this line, the Kit# is 44201 thru and, I am sad to say he just passed away on June 12, 2010 but what a great gift he gave us all. Other surnames attached is Parker, Taylor, Boon, Morris, Johnson, etc. The results seem to lean toward the Northern Ireland bunch, maybe Antrim.
I don't know much more but he did post over 31,000 names on the Morgan-Edmondson tree with Hopefully this information will help others researching these surnames. Of course there are many others but the list is too long to post on this forum.

Beth, Would there be a James (Jim) Morris b abt 1908, lived in Los Angeles, California during the 1920's on that list?

Thank you, Norma Morris
