Welcome to the Surname Project! DNA testing is a great way to further your research - we hope it works well for you.
You are very welcome to participate in this surname project. Please be aware, however, that almost everything we do at present in a surname DNA project is focused on the yDNA test results, as yDNA and the family surname is passed from father to son.
