For all Smiths, Smyths, Smythes, Schmidts, Smitts et al of ALL locations.
Register HERE to 1. participate and post in the Smith communitydiscussion forums and 2. If you send in your direct downline, for the part of the Smiths site (tree part of the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA) which will enable you to participate in the master tree side of the project. Your registration allows you to edit your member profile and contact others as well as be contacted. Second, we will update your member privileges for your branch of the tree after you send in your direct lineage that includes Smith/Schmidt/Smidt/Smythe/Smyth. This will allow you to add/edit your part of the tree, charts, photos, etc. The site is collaborative, meaning that rather than having multiple trees for one ancestor, there is ONE tree for one ancestor, with multiple branches. We do this in order to work on accuracy in conjunction with DNA results. Only those who supply a tree (doesn't matter what format, just needs to be a direct line with an indication of who your earliest sourced Smith ancestor is) need edit privileges, since being able to work on your own branch of this one tree is the whole point! IF YOU ALREADY SUPPLIED A TREE, you don't have to do it again, of course, just remind us. Updating member privileges for editing a tree branch will be AFTER we receive, process your tree, and join you to your branch of the tree and may take a bit of time.
Send your tree to firstname.lastname@example.org (You may use this form if you like or you may submit a direct line gedcom) You do not have to be registered on TNG to browse as a guest. .
