Re: Cohanim and Levites #dna

DNA studies show that many Cohenim share a common direct line male Ydna signal (a variant of J2 haplogroup) and many Levites also share a separate and different direct male line Ydna signal (a variant of R1a haplogroup). However this does not apply to all those who may have these surnames. You are recommended to take a dna haplogroup test, if you are male with such a name to see if you share the Cohenite or Levite dna signatures.
