My FamilyTreeDNA Project Website Title- Background





The Male Cooper DNA Group Project was initiated in 2002 by Gary S. Cooper, Lexington, NC, as a useful tool to use in conjunction with other written documentation in genealogy research to help identify and define different Cooper-Lines and validate existing Cooper family history. Because of its presence on the Internet it can gather information about the various Cooper families throughout the world.

The primary Cooper project site is now at
and the family Tree information for our test participants is found at

The yDNA Classic Chart of our members' tests are at and
the Colorized yDNA Chart that shows the differences between closely matching yDNA tests is located at
The map of the locations for the Most Distant yDNA Ancestor is at Select which group you want to view from the drop-down list.

The mtDNA Chart of our member's tests is found at
and the map of the locations for the Most Distant mtDNA Ancestor is at Select which group you want to view from the drop-down list.

So again,

Please keep your Most Distant yDNA Paternal Ancestor (a man's name) and your Most Distant mtDNA Maternal Ancestor (a woman's name) up-to-date on your FTDNA Account for each test participant. This information is taken directly from your FTDNA Account and used in the Charts.  If you fill in the Location information for your Most Distant Ancestors, that information will appear on the Maps.
