Hi Steve,

Although your ancestry only goes back a couple of generations, you DNA fingerprint will probably connect to one the established surname clusters (groupings of related cousins). If you would go the the Family Tree DNA web site, join the Casey project (to get lower prices) and order a 37 marker test then I could analyze your DNA markers and let you know how you are related to the other 50 Casey submissions. Since Casey is a clan based name, there are very few genetic sources for our surname. Once your marker values become available, I will be glad to analyze the meaning of your DNA when compared to others. You may want to look at my Casey DNA Project web site for more details of what kind of information you might expect to get from a DNA test:
