Smith DNA Official Y-DNA Chart
don't see yourself or see something that needs fixin'? Let us know!

This YDNA chart looks at who the YDNA line is for the person you clicked on, does not necessarily mean that a YDNA test has been done for an associated line*. For you to see what YOUR YDNA line is, you need to START with you or start with your grandfather or paternal grandfather, etc  Therefore, please login and add yourself (you may privatize your info) and your paternal lines so you can see how they chart. Note that if the first person in this chart is female, a male of that surname Smith is required to do the YDNA testing, such as a husband, son, cousin. We are the Smith DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA. If you are wanting to test YDNA for a surname other than Highsmith, Nesmith, Schmidt, Schmitt, Smeds, Smidt, Smith, Smithe, Smither, Smithers, Smithey, Smithhart, Smiths, Smithson, Smithy, Smitt, Smyth, Smythe please do a Project Search for the relevant DNA project

* On the TNG trees, there are several ways to determine the status of a DNA test. If it's simply a listed line that NO ONE has claimed, you will see, in the Branches/DNA section, "No DNA tester yet or not listed branch". Means we are waiting for someone to come along whose line this is to claim it and hopefully do a DNA test. If you see Smith DNA Kit XXXX(YDNA, FF, or mtDNA) means there is a DNA kit for that person of the type specified (ie, YDNA, Family Finder/Autosomal or mtDNA). Click on the link to contact that person, see the pedigree line, go to a group link(if there is a matched group for that kit). If this is someone's line that has not done a DNA test but has supplied a tree, you will see a branch listing and Tree-No DNA.

For the Smith Official DNA Project (All Locations) a minimum of 25, or better, 37 YDNA 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.
