SMITH Official DNA PROJECT REPORTS -Groups
-Short List Each Smith DNA Project group below represents a distinct family group. Each
group shares a common ancestor in the participant's male lines, proven by
the YDNA results, but the specific paper trail connections may be unknown.
Matches are not always perfect and may be refined as additional markers for
given kits are taken, including subgroups. As variations increase in results
from others in the group, the more likely it is that the common ancestor is
more generations removed from others in the group. The group numbering is
simply sequential- R-M269, for example, is the 3rd unique group from the
Haplogroup R-M269. The haplogroup is using the FTDNA shorthand haplogroup
conventions. Kit #s are partially privatized.
To form a YDNA based grouping, there must be at least 2 good YDNA matches
based on 1. at least 37 markers 2, known and proven tree match along with
less than 37 markers or 3 known and proven kinship if less than 37 markers.
The groups may also include autosomal, mtdna and tree only participants
based upon tree lines. The latter are presumed to be true but have not been
proven. If you are a male Smith or a female who has male Smith kin that can
do a YDNA test for you, or you are a male Smith who has done an autosomal
test but not YDNA, we recommend you do so. We also have groups for those
that have proven autosomal Smith/Schmidt matches -if you have autosomal
encourage your matches to upload (free) their dna to FamilyTreeDNA and
join the Smith Official DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA. Note that all groups and
discussion for the Smith DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA, including for any Group below
are located either on FamilyTreeDNA site for the Smith DNA Project at
FamilyTreeDNA or on the Smith DNA Project pages
