This project was created for individuals who want to perform Romero family tree projects, amateur and professional genealogists who wish to research and extend their Romero family trees by confirming records from common and DNA resources, and for determining if a person is part of a larger group of people.
A Surname Project traces members of a family that share a common surname. Since surnames are passed down from father to son like the Y-chromosome, this test is for males taking a Y-DNA test. Females do not carry their father’s Y-DNA and acquire a new surname by way of marriage, so the tested individual must be a male that wants to check his direct paternal line (father’s father’s father’s…) with a Y-DNA12, Y-DNA37, or Y-DNA67 marker test. Females who would like to check their direct paternal line can have a male relative with this surname order a Y-DNA test. Females can also order an mtDNA test for themselves such as the mtDNA or the mtDNAPlus test and participate in an mtDNA project.
All participants of the National Geographic Genographic DNA Project who are descended on a direct paternal line from Romero's are welcome to join the Romero Surname DNA Project!

DNA Collection Method The collection of a DNA sample may sound like a rather daunting process - however it is a very simple and painless procedure which is excellently explained by Dave Dorsey's step by step photographic guide to the whole process.
