Welcome to the U5 Project on behalf of World Families Network.? The U5 Project is a mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) project. Our maternal ancestors belonged to mtDNA haplogroup U5. Feel free to post anything that pertains to U5 genealogy, U5 DNA research, or to any of the U5 families.
The family forums are often low-traffic.? What this means is that your post will often stay visible on this forum for a matter of months.? However, do not expect any immediate responses to your queries.? Use the General Discussion forum for matters of immediate concern and these family forums to post semi-permament messages for other researchers..? All variant spellings are welcome.? If your Surname spelling is missing, we'll be glad to add it.? Click here to email a request to add your spelling.
We strongly encourage you to add your family information (we call it "Pedigree") to the Matriarch page, so that others may find you.? Click here to add your Pedigree.
Please visit the U5 Project website.
