    FAQ: My YDNA results came in but I don’t see them on the Smith DNA project yet

    Rest assured that the Smith DNA volunteer admins get emailed at the same time that you do about your results. When you get them, you can go login to FamilyTreeDNA using the credentials FTDNA gave you. That will bring you to myFTDNA page, where, on the right hand side you will see information such as YDNA or mtDNA matches, Haplogroup explanations, etc. You can also immediately look on the FamilyTreeDNA classic YDNA chart.

    When we get a chance we put the markers up here so that they...

    FAQ: I would like my YDNA markers added to the Smith DNA Project

    IF you had your YDNA DNA tested with FamilyTreeDNA, all you need to do is go join the Smith Official DNA project. Here are the step by steps to do that. The volunteer administrators for the official Smith DNA project for all locations at FTDNA and will receive an email letting us know you are now a member.

  • Comparing FamilyFinder/Autosomal Results on the Smith DNA Project (Autosomal Transfer

    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...

  • FAQ: Which SNP(s) should I order? (Smith DNA Project)

    FAQ: Which SNP(s) should I order? (Smith DNA Project)

    The Smith DNA project is a surname project where, primarily, YDNA STR results are compared by haplogroup to find matches. Members can look at FamilyTreeDNA matches by logging on to FTDNA; FTDNA shows which testers from within the entire database of testers, regardless of surname, a member has a match with. Depending on how many markers match versus how many do not, a person is deemed to be related to someone else on a range of very tightly related to not related.

  • FAQ: FamilyTreeDNA Big Y-700 White Paper

    FAQ: FamilyTreeDNA Big Y-700 White Paper

    Excerpt:
    A father passes down a near-exact copy of his chromosome Y (chrY) to his son. Imperfections during replication result in slight differences (e.g. single nucleotide polymorphisms; SNPs) that may be unique to the son. Genealogists use these patterns of similarities and differences to reconstruct paternal ancestry (the Y-tree). The FamilyTreeDNA team (FTDNA) released Big Y in 2013 to provide these patterns directly to customers. At that time, there were thousands of SNPs on the Y-tree...

  • FAQ: Finding your kit on the YDNA Chart for the Smith DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA

    FAQ: Finding your kit on the YDNA Chart for the Smith DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA

    This question comes up quite a bit. Basically, a person wants to find results on the classic or coloried charts for the Smith DNA Project. Because, by default, the results are spread amongst many pages and there is not a search button to look specifically for your kit in a given group, there is a good way to put all the results on one page and then use your browser's FIND to locate your kit. Link to the YDNA chart

    The results which are for YDNA only, are categorized by the haplogroup...
