VA-1600s Geographic Project - yDNA- Background
The VA-1600s project is established to focus on the early Virginia families. We have separate projects at FTDNA for mtDNA and yDNA, as we need to isolate the appropriate portion of a person's dna.
This project is for Surname (Paternal - yDNA) participants. We welcome all direct line descendants who trace their paternal line back to Virginia in the 1600s.
