Project Funding Request Form

Use this form to request partial funding for DNA testing from the Taylor Family Genes Project.


Guidelines for Project Funding

  1. You may apply for funding a test for yourself or for another person. In the latter case, he will be the "kit donor"; you will be the "kit owner".
     
  2. The proposed testing must be within the scope of Taylor Family Genes (TFG) Project. The proposed test subject (i.e., kit donor) must have the surname Taylor or a variant of it or show a non-parental event (NPE) suggesting a Taylor surname line.
     
  3. The proposed testing must have benefit for more than one member of the Taylor Family Genes Project, e.g., an existing matched group or promises to lead to a new matched group.  
  4. The Project will pay for a portion, but not all, of the cost for a 37-marker Y-DNA STR test. The kit donor must have Y-DNA, therefore, male.
     
  5. The testing must be for at least 37 Y-DNA STR markers. this may include an upgrade from 12 or 25 to 37 markers.  
  6. The proposed test subject must submit documentation for a Taylor paternal line, leading back to a paternal Taylor, born 1850 or earlier. This tree will be published in abbreviated form on the project website.
     
  7. The proposed kit owner must agree to be a fully-participating member of Taylor Family Genes. He or she must agree:
  8. The sample kit must be returned to FTDNA for analysis and the kit owner must consent to release of the results to FTDNA and the project. The project will not pay until both steps are completed.
     
  9. The deadline for funding requests is November 30 of each year. This allows us to take advantage of end-of-year special prices. Requests submitted after November 30, will be considered for the next year.

If these requirements seem harsh, please excuse us. We have such a limited amount of funding and many people who want it.

Procedure

First, submit your funding request and receive approval.

New Tests

When your funding request is approved, go online to the Taylor Family Genes project at www.familytreedna.com and click on "Join Request". On the next page, select Option B by clicking on "Purchase A Test To Join This Project".

From the next page, select either Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67 or Y-DNA111. (We will pay part of the sale cost of the Y-DNA37 test.) When you get to payment methods, select "Pay by Invoice".

When the sample kit is received by FTDNA, the consent signed (It may be done electronically on the website.) and the portion owed by you paid the project will pay the Y-DNA37 amount by transfer from its general fund. You will be responsible for any additional costs.

Test Upgrades

We will only fund upgrades for existing and fully-participating members of the project. Other requirements to be completed before the request will be considered:

To upgrade from 12 or 25 markers, log onto your personal MY FTDNA pages. Click the orange "Order an Upgrade" button on the upper right of the window.

On the next page, choose "Order a Standard Test" and select the option that gives at least 37 markers. (We will pay part of the amount to upgrade to 37.) When you get to payment methods, select "Pay by Invoice". The upgrade to 37 markers amount will be transferred from the general fund when the requirements have been met.

Occasionally, a new DNA sample will be needed. If so, it must be returned to FTDNA before payment will be made.

Alternate Procedure for British Isles Residents

Residents of the United Kingdom and Ireland are eligible for project-sponsored tests. We fully sponsor a limited number of Y37 tests for Taylor-surnamed men attending certain genealogical events. We do this, through ISOGG, in order to increase our participation in the source area for the Taylor surname.

Contact project administration for details.

Genealogical Documentation

Genetic genealogy is not a replacement for traditional, documentary research, but a supplement to it. We will not fund tests without assurances that the requestor has done at least a minimum of research to establish a need or benefit for DNA testing.
