As our participants discover genetic matches, they often also are able to link their traditional genealogy research (aka paper, libraries, books, family heirlooms, etc) and find answers to their family trees. Sometimes these answers are definitive and unlock mysteries which for years have stymied researchers. Other times (and most often), they simply provide critical clues to guide future research.
The family groups below are those which we collectively have defined. They are usually spearheaded by one or two researchers, and where that is the case, we will include their contact information.
Want to see how you compare to these groups, or see if your FTDNA YDNA results match? Then get involved by taking the tests and seeing where and if you match.
Click on the YDNA Results link at the top of the page to see the YDNA results from our test study. Notice you can search and sort by family groups, and when you compare the DNA results to the group, you'll see the family groups in one column in the table. This allows our test participants to quickly see if they match into a family group or not when their results are posted.Click on the tabs below to explore our various family groups. These groups are represented in the YDNA results page and table. Sort by the Family Groups header to see and select the various test participants.
