COLLABORATE- Come collaborate with us and post your Smith line of descent. We are a free volunteer project that has a goal to sort out the many many Smith, Schmidt, Smyth, Smythe, Smithson, Smithall, Smithers et al lines, through DNA and through collaboration. What if you see an error or want to suggest a change?  Getting Started

JOIN Smiths at FamilyTreeDNA
- Come join the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA with a DNA kit. Or, did you do a YDNA test with FamilyTreeDNA but not part of the Smith Official DNA Project on FamilyTreeDNA? Instructions on how to join here. Or, if you tested YDNA with a different vendor (Ancestry, Relative Genetics, Sorensen, etc), you can do a 3rd party transfer to FamilyTreeDNA (YDNA) (Autosomal) . We also welcome all who have tested mtDNA or Family Finder/autosomal by having you list your tree (YDNA groups are the baseline to compare other 's trees). We hope those who are able will test YDNA especially with the Smith surnames; the more people we have to compare against the better we can know and sort out the ancestries and family lines. Do you know something about these Smith ancestors?
