Discussing and sharing of information regarding the ongoing Smith DNA project. Goal: Sort out Smith/Schmidt/Smidt/Smyth/Smythe and variant surnames worldwide primary by YDNA DNA test results, secondarily by autosomal DNA in order to find common ancestors and establish genetic connections, along with accurate tree data

Smith DNA Project for ALL Smiths, Schmidts, Smythes,Smyths,Smithey, Smithhart and Smitts and any variation from every geographical location. We warmly welcome you to join our huge, one name study, project (also known as Smith DNA Project), with over 3475 total members and over 285 groups that match, comprised of all Smiths from all territories in the world. We keep one big tree and other research info at Smithsworldwide.org We welcome any Smith, Smyth, Smythe, Schmidt, Smiths, Smithey, Smithhart, Smithson, Smitt, Smidt or any other variation of the Smith surname for the Smith DNA Study. The project covers all of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Asia and all points in between. Smith DNA Matched Groupings http://www.smithsworldwide.org/smgrouplist.asp Participating listed lines on Smithsworldwide http://www.smithsworldwide.org/smembers.asp We're on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/groups/513953752143088/ We are primarily a YDNA project for matching purposes, but are happy to also list genealogies for mtDNA and FamilyFinder participants who have a Smith in their line. Any YDNA test-taking participant must always be a MALE who either (1) descends in an unbroken male-to-male line from a Smith-surnamed male ancestor (including variant surnames) or who (2) has reason to believe he descends from such an ancestor. Females don't carry the type of DNA, yDNA, needed for testing in this. However, females are warmly invited to have a male Smith in their line take the test as their representative or share autosomal data. We encourage you in all circumstances to come list your tree on Smithsworldwide.org. We have one tree with many branches, rather than many individual trees, and we seek to resolve conflicts through consensus, collaboration and DNA. Requirements A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. They are of the most interest in cultures where surnames are passed on from father to son like the Y-Chromosome. This project is for males taking a Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) test. Thus, the individual who tests must be a male who wants to check his direct paternal line (father's father's father's...) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, Y-DNA67, or Y-DNA111 test and who has one of the surnames listed for the project. Females do not carry their father's Y-DNA. Females who would like to check their father's direct paternal line can have a male relative with his surname order a Y-DNA test. Females can also order an mtDNA test for themselves such as the mtDNAPlus test or the mtFullSequence test and participate in an mtDNA project. Both men and women may take our autosomal Family Finder test to discover recent relationships across all family lines. Surnames In This Project Highsmith, Nesmith, Schmidt, Schmitt, Smeds, Smidt, Smith, Smithe, Smither, Smithers, Smithey, Smithhart, Smiths, Smithson, Smithy, Smitt, Smyth, Smythe
