The Smith project is a surname project for the Smith/Schmidt/Smyth/Smitt/Smithers/Smithson and variations surname. For DNA comparison, we primarily use YDNA, which requires that the participant is or has a tester that is a male Smith whose father is a Smith whose father is a Smith, or, if adopted or otherwise, unknown, has strong matches on multiple markers (past 12) with other Smiths testing via YDNA. If you have done autosomal type testing, you can also join the project; we will be looking for matches with other testers who have done YdNA as well as autosomal.
For those that have done autosomal tests via other vendors than FTDNA, we do not do uploads on the Smiths project site, but you can upload your results to FamilyTreeDNA for comparison via a 3rd party transfer.
So, bottom line. Send your direct lineage that includes Smith to us for listing on the TNG (tree) side, and then, if you did autosomal testing with another vendor than FTDNA, upload your results to FTDNA for comparison.
