Khmer Cousins DNA Project - khmercousinsproject

Welcome to the Khmer Cousins DNA Project Webpage.

The Khmer Cousins Project is a DNA testing project for the Cambodian Community worldwide. The goal for the project is to find cousin connections through DNA testing to rebuild families.

This project will be divided into 3 groups; 

  1. Children Adopted from Cambodia.

  2. Khmer's living in the USA or Internationally. You were born in Cambodia or both of your parents were born in Cambodia. 

  3. Khmer's living in Cambodia who gave up children to adoption or who are looking for missing family members.

A new DNA test was developed in 2010 that can test male and female individuals and creates a DNA marker profile of over 900,000 markers for each person. As new tests are taken they are compared to existing profiles in the database for matches. The test can find relationships from sibling or parent out to fifth cousins or more.
