About us

The Hope Surname Project seeks to provide data that will allow the better definition of genetic relationships among diverse Hope lines internationally. We hope to enable individuals to identify their personal ancestral lines and relate them to others. To this end, we encourage ALL Hope males to submit their DNA samples within the project. Hope Females, please encourage your brothers and/or male Hope cousins to submit their DNA under the project. The more participants we have, the more we will all learn. For what it can do for you, see project news below.

We also have several individuals who have submitted mtDNA for testing for maternal ancestry. We consider this a valid arm of the Hope Surname Project, even though mtDNA doesn't follow surname lines.
