Hello, my name is David Ray Mecum Jr. and I was researching my name and found this. I was born in the Chicago area, but my parents are from southern Illinois. I always thought no one would ever have my name but it appears to be there are quite a few of us. Any information on ancestry would be appreciated.

Subject: Mecum DNA Project

Dear Family and fellow MECUM researchers:

At a recent Genealogical Society Annual Conference here in San Luis Obispo CA I signed up for DNA testing to trace our MECUM / MECOM line through my brother Ken's dna at the following site: .

The Mecum dna testing can only be followed with males with the surname Mecum from father to father to father and on.

He will be submitting his dna next week after receiving his kit. In the meantime I have formed a site to follow up on any Mecum dna research and invite any other males with the surname MECUM in other Mecum lines to join us with their dna to try to prove our common lineage.

You can access our Mecum DNA Project here:

Looking forward to proving our Mecum lineage and connecting the lines. This may take some time to get this all rolling, so be patient and join in with your DNA to further this research. If you have any questions please email me.
