To make this project possible the Families in British India Society decided to partner with the Family Tree DNA testing service to provide reduced pricing for our members and to encourage this form of research. Participants who sign up through FIBIS to FTDNA can also have their results joined to the appropriate Surname Project and to the appropriate Y-DNA or mtDNA haplogroup projects.
