yDNA is a tiny portion of the entire DNA molecule that is passed from FATHER TO SON for many generations with little or no change. Because of this unique quality, it can be used as a very powerful genealogical tool to trace surnames. Therefore yDNA tests are required
This project has undergone several major revisions, particularly in the approach of displaying yDNA groups. The current (2021) approach was used by the recent past administrator and changes to the yDNA display will be minimal.
Several geographical Phelps related projects have sprung from this overall Phelps yDNA project as listed below.
Be sure to review the LINKS page to review a number of Phelps sites for research, etc
