About us

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

Our project is just getting started, and we expect to have many exciting discoveries.

Participating is an opportunity to uncover information not provided in 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 also provide information on the evolution of the surname.

The surnames in this DNA Project are 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 also to help people learn about their direct female line, which would be their mother, their mother's mother, and back in time. Watch this page for news about future developments.
