This is my very favourite photo of my grandparents, William LeRoy Smith and Kathleen Alberta Banting. Young, beautiful and in love.

The Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA is THE Smith One Name and DNA project for Smith, Schmidt, Smyth, Smythe, Smidt, Smithhart, and all variations or other origins, including Gowan, McGowan, for all locations.  Over 4630 members and over 400 matched groups.

COLLABORATE- 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.

REGISTER - Register, free,  for a user name and password on the Smith DNA 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

JOIN Smiths at FamilyTreeDNA- 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? Instructions on how to join here. Or, if you tested YDNA with a different vendor (Ancestry, Relative Genetics, 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). 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. Do you know something about these Smith ancestors?
