Background

Begun in September, 2000 at the time of Family Tree DNA's founding, the study began with the fathers at the Solomon Schechter School of Bergen County, NJ and branched into a study of Ashkenazi roots generally. The project currently has over 2,500 participants.  

NOTE: If you are a member with evident Jewish heritage, unless you indicate otherwise by contacting us, once you join this project we will  join your kit to the FTDNA Avotaynu project, a private* clearinghouse of Jewish genetic data that both assists JEWish FTDNA Project administrators in comparative analysis and also provides data for scientific research projects.   (*no data is visible to general public or members--only to connected project administrators and researchers).  You are welcome to leave the Avotaynu project at any time.
