Project created Sept 2004.

Doty Doughty Family DNA Project.

Please post your Most Distance Ancestors, and GEDCOM.  Upgrading the numbers of markers and the Haplogroup are helping to tie family members together.  

Lessons in Genetic Genealogy

Testing the Y chromosome (Y-DNA) - The Paternal DNA, passed down from father to son, which is only found in males, and is useful in verifying common Ancestry.


Testing the mtDNA - The Maternal DNA test is available for both males and females, to uncover information about your mother, and her female ancestors.  This will only provide a direct DNA link on the maternal line. (Mother, Daughter).


Family Finders - test traces all of your ancestral lines. It uses your autosomal DNA to identify confidently relationships for five generations. This is different from our mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and Y-chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) tests. They trace clearly and exclusively the direct maternal or paternal lines. 


Note:  As you may already know, FTDNA has discontinued the Deep Clade test, and they now offer the Geno 2 test from National Geographic’s.  The test may not cover all the SNP”S, new ones are continually being found.   For instance L159.2 will not show up in the Geno 2 test, you have to order it on your personal FTDNA web site.   The FTDNA Haplogroup charts are not keeping current with all the new SNP’s being found, so the most current charts are kept by volunteers on the web site’

So, if you want to expand your Haplogroup, the Geno 2will be the best way to go, then add to it as new SNP’s are found.  The volunteers that are tracking all the new SNP’s, here are some of the R1 group.

If you’re not sure what to do, contact one of email address on one of these sites above.


R1b-Z255-L159 Project  (Down stream of L21)


 DYS464X project is grouping surnames and marker information together, trying to find common ancestry.
