Smith Official DNA & One Name Study Project
Smith DNA Official Project-All Locations-A FamilyTreeDNA Project
|Smith DNA Projects at FamilyTreeDNA|
We, Smithsworldwide.org, are the official Smith/Schmidt/Smythe/Smyth/Smidt and all variations for every location in the world. We did a merge several years ago of 3 regional Smith projects, with all members, into one master project. These 3 regional projects were Smith Connections-Northeastern Smiths, Southern Smiths and Worldwide Smiths. We are not an umbrella project; 2 of these regional projects, since they were already merged into the one master project, are no longer listed at FamilyTreeDNa as data from all 3 projects are incorporated into the Official Smith project
There are at least two regional projects at FTDNA. Smith Connections-Northeastern, which is a strictly regional project for those with connections in certain northeastern states in the United States only continues on as a separate, unaffiliated regional project. There is also another, Smiths of Abbeville SC, which is a regional project strictly for those who have Smith connections in that district. If you fit specifically into either of those criteria for those regional projects, you might also want to join them, keeping in mind that we cover all locations. To compare your DNA data with ALL Smith/Schmidt/Smythe/Smyth etc, as we are the only project for ALL Smith/Schmidt/Smyth/Smythe, etc please join the Smith Official DNA Project.(6/4/2014 Views 2015)

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.
