About us

The Sterry DNA Project is open to all males with the surname STERRY or recognised variants.

This is the tenth year of our project and we have made many exciting discoveries.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in the paper records, which will help with your research of your family tree. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results for the various family trees will provide information on the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are researched as part of the Sterry one-name study. You can learn more about this significant research and the the associated family trees, by visiting the one-name study web site, or contacting the Group Administrator.

The Y DNA test tells you about your direct male line, which would be your father, his father, and back in time. You must be male to take this test, and you should have one of the surnames shown. If you are female, you will need to find a direct line male in your family tree to participate and represent your tree.

The Y DNA 37 markers test is the minimum test that will provide useful results. You will need to be tested for 37 markers or more to be eligible to join the STERRY DNA Project.

To join the STERRY DNA Project, go to the STERRY DNA Project Profile.

If you are already a member of the National Geographic Society's Genographic Project [], you can transfer your results to FamilyTreeDNA and join the STERRY DNA Project at no extra cost.

Both males and females may also be interested in learning about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Both men and women inherit mtDNA, although only women pass it on. You would order a mtDNA test. For matches in a genealogical time frame, order the mtDNA Plus test.
