There are currently (9-1-2014) 106 participants that have submitted y-DNA.
64 members have been assigned to 9 groups. The remaining 40 are unassigned.
The numbers noted here will not agree with the count at the top of the Project Profile Page depending how long it has been since an update.

Each of the groups do NOT relate to each other, nor do the unassigned relate to any other participants.

There are currently a few members participating on the basis of mt-DNA or Family Finder results.
However, there is no attempt to tabulate, or discuss these results. This is a y-DNA project.

It is possible to print the y-DNA Chart as follows: 1) Right click on the chart, then Select All; 2) then Copy; 3) Paste into an open Excel spreadsheet; 4) Delete extraneous cells, save, and print.

It is suggested that you start with, as a minimum, with the 25 marker test, preferably 37 markers. Matches at 12 markers mean very little other than ruling someone out as not matching anyone else in the project. If a match is made at 12, an upgrade to at least 25 will be needed. Ordering testing in stages makes the cost overall more expensive.

Attention: Participants MUST send a single line pedigree from you to your earliest known ancestor to the Group Administrator. Include dates and locations of deaths and births. Include spousal information if known. If possible include the brothers and sisters of those in your direct line to your ancestor.

Note 1: All participants of the National Geographic Genographic DNA Project who are descended on a direct paternal line from Dickason or variants, e.g., Dickinson, Dixon, Dickerson, Dickenson, etc.are welcome to join this y-DNA Project! You can do so by ordering from your personal page.

NOTE 2: See also DIXON surname project for DIXON. Those with DICKSON may want to consider the DIXON and/or DICKASON Projects. You can belong to several projects simultaneously.
