About us

If you have tested U106 positive, please JOIN us!

EXCEPTION: If you have tested U198+ (aka S29) you must join the R U198 Project, rather than the R U106 Project.

The best approach, and the best value, is to order Big Y-700, which, in addition to discovering your current clade and private variants on your own line of descent, also includes all of the original 111 STRs, and hundreds more.

Members should have, or will order, at least a 12 marker STR test, so your results will appear on the Y-DNA Results page with your SNP clademates.

Please opt in to sharing, and grant admins at least Limited Access (see Manage Personal Information on your FTDNA personal page).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: WHEN YOU JOIN THIS PROJECT, YOU HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION TO PLACE YOUR SNP AND STR DATA INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN, FROM WHICH IT CAN NEVER BE RETRIEVED. We publish by the ancestor name that you provide, and the FTDNA kit number. We do not publish your given name or contact info.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO PROVIDE US WITH DNA RAW DATA FROM ANY SOURCE, BY YOUR OWN CHOICE, YOU HAVE GRANTED PERMISSION TO PLACE IT INTO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN.

The part of your DNA data displayed in a public project such as this one, or any other similar project, is subject to use by others who may wish to present it differently elsewhere. Progress in this field of research depends entirely on the voluntary sharing of our DNA results data. NOBODY IS AUTHORIZED OR ALLOWED TO VIOLATE ANY LAW OR DATA REGULATION, INCLUDING THE “GDPR” OF THE EU.

Please also see the “Background” tab above, the “Results” tab above for helpful info about where to find key info about your Big Y results, especially, and other pages at the tabs above.
