Join the Smith DNA Project at FTDNA

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 (YDNA) (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

Matched Groupings

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

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.

What if you see an error or want to suggest a change? Smithsworldwide also has discussion forums, including specific forums for groups. Do you know something about these Smith ancestors? Come send in your line that includes Smith, Schmidt etc whether you have done DNA or not. Register, free,  for a user name and password on the Smith DNA project site, to add or edit information to a tree branch you have sent (form to send your family tree or you may send a direct line gedcom to .  You do not have to be registered to send a suggestion; registration is for adding/editing on your branch of the tree and sending private messages and emails to other members. All free.

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.
