About us

The purpose of the District of Columbia Y-DNA Project is to understand genealogical relationships, social networks and the historical context of the DC area pre-Civil War. In addition to sharing DNA samples, it is hoped that the participants will also share their knowledge and documents so that we can co-create not only our genealogical lines, but the lives and times of our ancestors. If you had ancestors that lived in the Washington, DC or Alexandria, Virginia area pre-Civil War, this project is for you!
