The Iowa DNA Project welcomes all of those with a connection to the State of Iowa. This project aims to learn more about the settlers of Iowa and to connect DNA cousins to surnames (or variants) in our family tree database. The Iowa DNA Project focuses primarily on Family Finder test results to connect known and prospective DNA cousins, and their collateral lines. Testing yDNA and mtDNA is also encouraged. If you would like to join, you must have, or be willing to, test to at least Family Finder level with Family Tree DNA, or have transferred your results from another testing organization to Family Tree DNA. To Join go to the public website link above and select Join.
