Some of our Smiths Official All members
Family Lines and Research

Lots of info on this site. Think of Smith Official All as being broken up into two main parts-the first part is the family information and research part; the second is DNA Reporting and results. The family lines and information are listed on the forums, by early ancestor, in order to group them with related Smiths/Schmidts/Smythes/Smyths/Smidts et al. All Smiths or those who research Smith/Schmidt/Smyth/Smythe are welcome to post on the forums, you simply have to be registered and logged in to do so to deter spammers; you do not have to be logged in to read, only to post. Because we welcome DNA results from all vendors, you can post your markers and either submit your tree here or email your tree to so we can list on the forum.

Your first post(s) will be held and approved so that we can make sure spammers aren't registering to post junk. We chose to use a forum so that you can, logged in, post and reply as you want, edit your own information associated with your membername, as opposed to the admins of the project being a bottleneck. Most of all Smith Official All participants were sent a membername, If you do not have a membername or you have trouble logging on, please immediately email and we will fix for you. Bear in mind that Smiths Official DNA is a volunteer project affiliated with FTDNA, we are not paid, and not always available immediately but will reply back as soon as possible.

Here is a link to ALL the forums you can post on. One, for example, is Most Wanted and Queries- Have a brick wall ancestor? Post him or her!
One of the forums,  Smith Family Information and Lines forum is maintained by the administrator and cannot be posted on directly at the top level, ie, adding a new ancestor, until approved. The reason for this is that we want to see if your family line might fit with someone else first, and if so, we move it into that group. If not, we start a new group and add you as the member associated with it.

We also have an ancestral photo section, DAR/SAR reports, early ancestor report, location reports and census lookups for those we have identified on the site.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 markers, is strongly recommended. Many times one can appear to match other kits but the match falls apart after 12 markers. We do not attempt to match kits into groups on less than 25 with the exception of a strong paper trail or known family kinship with another tester.
