This originally started as an attempt to locate the Flood family that immigrated from County Longford, near the Westmeath border, to New York City. In this process several Flood lines were discovered, all from that same area of Ireland, who had some common histories. The genetic testing idea was then born, to establish whether in fact they were all related. This then grew into the concept to have all the Floods with Irish roots to join the group, and expand the family, and share our histories. There are 8 who have joined the Flood DNA Project, and if you read the information on the Legan Connection (menu on left), 3 of the Flood families had connections with that area.  The 3 of us tested and much to our surprise and disappointment we are from 3 separate Flood lines! Here is the DNA comparison table (note that Raymond and Kevin are related through a common grand father, and therefore match on all 37 markers).  Also note that Jonathan Flood and James Patrick Flood match exactly on the first 12 markers.

**A value of 0 for any marker indicates that the lab reported a null value or no result for this marker. All cases of this nature are retested multiple times by the lab to confirm their accuracy. Mutations causing null values are infrequent, but are passed on to offspring just like other mutations, so related male lineages such as a father and son would likely share any null values.

Since a Surname Project in essence traces members of a family that share a common surname, and females (a) don't carry their father's Y-DNA, and (b) acquire a new surname by the way of marriage, in order to be relevant to the Surname Project, the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his paternal line (father's father's father's...). The test to be ordered is either the Y-DNA12, Y-DNA25, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA59 and females should look for a brother or cousin with that surname to be tested. Females can also order a test for themselves, which will be the mtDNA or mtDNAPlus, but the results of this test cannot be tied to the Surname Project.
