Participating in a Surname DNA Project provides:

  • A report on the participant's genetic DNA, which is very close (and sometimes identical) to the earliest known ancestor

  • A classification of the participant's "deep" ancestry, which gives insight into the prehistoric origins of your surname ancestors

  • A sense of camaraderie with all who participate in the Family Project, which is particularly strong for those who share a genetic ancestry

  • Stimulation to family research and sharing of information

  • A wider sense of identity and relationship, as we begin to realize how much we are a World Family.

  • A chance to compare your genetic ancestry with those of the Surname and the Variant Spellings

  • Locates the genetic matches that do not share your common surname
