Y-DNA Testing for Surname Lyon and Variations
such as, Lyons, Lion, Lions, Leone, de Lyon, etc.,
for the Lyon(s) Families Association
Dedicated to the memory of my aunt, Betty Ann (Matthiesen) Cogliati (1920-2009),
for many years a Corresponding Editor of The Lyon's Tale, newsletter of the LFA.
These pages are intended as an aid for advancing your Lyon/Lyons genealogy using DNA testing in cooperation with the Lyon(s) Families Association.  Test results from any and all testing laboratories are welcome, not just those from the Lyon(s) DNA Surname Project based at FamilyTreeDNA and at World Families Network.

To participate in the analyses, here, you will need to share your test results and the genealogy of your patrilineal line, which does not mean your identity will be made public.  For a discussion of privacy and answers to other common questions regarding DNA testing, please see these pages:

Subsidies

If you want to increase the probability of making a match and speed up the advance of this project and your own genealogy, offer to fully or partially subsidize a test.  My needed Lyon cousin has already been tested, so I won't be personally offering to subsidize another test, here, but I can vouch from experience that offering to subsidize all or part of the testing for a cousin on a needed line is an effective way to bring them forward for testing and, thus, advance your own genealogy.

so the "Lyon Group" there no longer exists.
