SMITH Official  DNA PROJECT REPORTS -Groups -Short List
Each Smith DNA Project group below represents a distinct family group.  Each group shares a common ancestor in the participant's male lines, proven by the YDNA results, but the specific paper trail connections may be unknown.  Matches are not always perfect and may be refined as additional markers for given kits are taken, including subgroups. As variations increase in results from others in the group, the more likely it is that the common ancestor is more generations removed from others in the group. The group numbering is simply sequential- R-M269, for example, is the 3rd unique group from the Haplogroup R-M269. The haplogroup is using the FTDNA shorthand haplogroup conventions.  Kit #s are partially privatized.
To form a YDNA based grouping, there must be at least 2 good YDNA matches based on 1. at least 37 markers 2, known and proven tree match along with less than 37 markers or 3 known and proven kinship if less than 37 markers. The groups may also include autosomal, mtdna and tree only participants based upon tree lines. The latter are presumed to be true but have not been proven. If you are a male Smith or a female who has male Smith kin that can do a YDNA test for you, or you are a male Smith who has done an autosomal test but not YDNA, we recommend you do so. We also have groups for those that have proven autosomal Smith/Schmidt matches -if you have autosomal matches, please encourage your matches to upload (free) their dna to FamilyTreeDNA and join the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA.

If you know a better match, or one that should be made, let us know.

Smith DNA Group GRP-E-M2_-3 - Nicholas smith b 1697 Gloucester Co VA (Francis/Nicholas)
Locations: Middesex, VA; Gloucester, VA; Essex Co, VA; Prince Georges MD; Bedford Co VA; Saline MO

Early origins with Nicholas Smith and son Capt. Nicholas Smith of  (Middlesex, Gloucester, and Essex Co) from about 1665-1757 with descendancy traced through son Col Francis Smith (!725-1762) and his son Francis Smith (1749-1814).  based on William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. 25 No. 23, Jan 1917.  

Any of the following descendants of Col. Francis Smith would also be beneficial for further testing:  Sons Meriweather Smith (1730-1794), William Smith 1745-1785) and testing with descendants of the brothers of Thomas Adams Smith (1781-1844) - Reuben Smith (1755-1836), William Wilkinson Smith (1774 -     ) and/or Ebenezer Smith (1780-1837).
