Come join the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA with a DNA kit. Or, did you do a YDNA test with FamilyTreeDNA but not part of the Smith Official DNA Project on FamilyTreeDNA? Instructions on how to join here. Or, if you tested DNA (autosomal) with a different vendor (Ancestry, 23andMe, Sorensen, etc), you can do a 3rd party transfer to FamilyTreeDNA (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-see
Smith YDNA Report on FamilyTreeDNA). 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. If you have not done DNA yet, you are invited to send in your tree
(direct line gedcom or you
may use this form) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of the Smith DNA Project have their results compared, and if, primarily, there is a match on YDNA or on verified autosomal results listed on FamilyTreeDNA, we add them to a group. We also attempt to verify the line of descent trees and check for conflicts. The custom group chart has pedigrees, top tree, vertical charts and relationships for each member who fits into a group.
Groups are based on Smith DNA YDNA matches
Come discuss your Smiths and Schmidts on the Smith DNA discussion forum. When there are matches withn a group, there is a forum for those who want to further discuss how they may be related Forums include Queries, Most Wanted, Roll Call, Project Updates, Tnagled Lines, Mystery O Day, Smith Adoptions and DNA Forums
SMITHSWORLDWIDE is the Smith DNA Project site for keeping One Big Tree with many branches, as well as related group items. 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.
We welcome corrections and do not claim that all data is infallible. After all, that's the whole point of a collaborative project, eh? To root out errors and inconsistencies, make additions and seek to refine lines through DNA
When you send in your line, you will be given a *branch* and, registering,
you will be tied to that branch. Branches are used as index pointers to all
related information for a given member regarding where your line is, matched groupings, etc and
are also used for permissions for editing and adding information.
