Yes. Got it done with FamilyTreeDNA >>> -Join the Smith DNA project (Official-All Locations) at FamilyTreeDNA, (we are the official Smiths Project at FamilyTreeDNA for ALL geographical locations) . After you join, the Smith volunteer administrators  will be sent an email letting us know you are a member of the project. What you need to do is send your direct line Smith descent to us. We will then send you back the link so you can add or edit the info. If you already are on FamilyTreeDNA,  here's how to login to FTDNA and join Smiths.

Yes. Test mtDNA or Family Finder/Autosomal results. We are not strictly an mtDNA project but do link to the FamilyTreeDNA chart for Smith members who have tested mtDNA. If you tested for autosomal results, you may upload your results to FamilyTreeDNA for comparison via a 3rd party transfer. It is not possible to directly compare mtDNA, autosomal/FF and yDNA with each other, but it is possible for you to list your tree.  Join the Smiths project (Smiths Official All at FTDNA) and then send us your direct family line, from the earliest Smith/Schmidt/Smythe etc for which you have a source, directly down to you, including spouses and locations.
