About us

The Ulph DNA Project welcomes new participants. We encourage you to join today!

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in paper records, which will help with your family history research. We will also discover which family trees are related. As the project progresses, the results will also provide information about the evolution of the surnames covered.

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



At present we are confining the project to Y-DNA tests, which tell 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.

We encourage males who order a Y-DNA test to order 37 markers, if possible. If you order fewer markers, you can upgrade later, though this costs a little more.

In due course we hope to help people to learn about their direct female line, by means of mtDNA tests. Watch this page for news about future developments.

Both Y DNA and mtDNA test results contain no personal information, but will show that you are a match or a close match to those to whom you are related. This is an opportunity to learn more about your origins and ancestry.

Order your test kit TODAY, at the bottom of this page, or visit the web site shown at the top of this page for more information. If you care to contact the Group Administrator first, you may find that funds are available to assist the cost of your test.
