This The Voyer DNA Project Family Project was started to:

  1. Help researchers from common or related families work together to find their shared heritage.
  2. Identify how the participant's families are connected, both genetically and through paper trails.
  3. Identify and confirm genetic Lineages of ancestral families.
  4. Ultimately catalog pedigrees and genetic connections of all of the known project families.

Participating in a Surname DNA Project provides:

  • The participant's genetic DNA, which is very close (and sometimes identical) to his earliest known ancestor.
  • The participant's "deep" ancestry (Haplogroup), which identifies the paternal ancestor's prehistoric origins.
  • A sense of camaraderie, which is particularly strong for those who share a genetic ancestry
  • Stimulation to family research and renewed 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 your Surname and the spelling variations
  • Your genetic matches who do not share your common surname
  • The knowledge to understand our ancestors better - particularly where the records have been lost


Surnames of particular interest to this project



When ordering your test I would recommend a minimum 37 marker test, which when you order under the Voyer  DNA project will qualify you for the group discount. If you want more exhaustive results, you can review their various tests. Remember, you will be eligible for project discounts on all tests.



The results of the VOYER project can be seen here or by clicking on the y-Results


Currently, the results are sparse. We need more participants to make it useful
