The Tyler DNA Project is worldwide and open to all families with variants of this surname.
(Please advise other spelling variants to the Project Administrator.)
The Tyler DNA Project was started to work towards the goals listed below.
Surname DNA testing is a great tool available to genealogists!
- Surname tests allow genealogists to verify your father's, father's, father's paternal ancestry.
- Surname DNA information can be very powerful when combined with traditional genealogy by confirming the results already obtained, correct any wrong turns taken and assist in demolishing that stubborn brick wall.
Participating in a Surname DNA Project provides:
- The participant's genetic DNA, which is very close (and sometimes identical) to his earliest known ancestor.
- The participant's "deep" ancestry (Haplogroup), which identifies the paternal ancestor's prehistoric origins.
- A sense of camaraderie, which is particularly strong for those who share a genetic ancestry.
- Stimulation to family research and renewed sharing of information.
- A wider sense of identity and relationship, as we begin to realize how much we are a World Family.
- A chance to compare your genetic ancestry with those of your Surname and the spelling variations.
- Your genetic matches who do not share your common surname.
- The knowledge to understand our ancestors better - particularly where the records have been lost.
Family trees provided by Tyler Project members for different lineages can be found on the NEWS tab of this page.
