Smith DNA Project Matched Groupings General DiscussionSmith Matched and Affiliated Groupings that are determined via YDNA testing and affiliated paper trails -s what we are asking for- discussion and sources, leading to collaboration and accuracy. If you see something on any given line (which you can compare by either clicking the tree icon or the pedigree icon on a given kit or participant) that looks incorrect, or needs to be expanded upon, or needs a source, please discuss/comment on it here so we can update the information to be as accurate as possible. Likewise, if you are looking at the group and you can see where one line that stops at a particular point can be connected to another line (or you have a well thought out, yet unproven, theory) please discuss/comment on it here.
