The Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA is THE Smith One Name and DNA project for Smith, Schmidt, Smyth, Smythe, Smidt and all variations, for all locations. We have the Smith One Name Study at Guild of One Name Studies (GOONS). Over 2400 members and over 220 matched groups.
Come collaborate with us and post your Smith line of descent. We are a free volunteer project that has a
goal to sort out the many many Smith, Schmidt, Smyth, Smythe, Smithson,
Smithall, Smithers et al lines, through DNA and through collaboration.

YDNA Or, did you do a YDNA test with FamilyTreeDNA but not part of the Smith Official DNA Project? Instructions on how to join here. Or,
if you tested YDNA with a different vendor (Ancestry, Relative Genetics,
Sorensen, etc), you can do a 3rd party transfer to FamilyTreeDNA or
you may list it
here for comparison.
mtDNA/FamilyFinder(Autosomal)We also welcome all who have tested mtDNA or Family
Finder/autosomal by having
you list your tree
(YDNA groups are the baseline to compare other 's trees). We hope those
who are able will test YDNA especially with the Smith surnames; the more
people we have to compare against the better we can know and sort out the
ancestries and family lines.
