The McIver Surname DNA Project - News

There were five original participants in this project. Four of the five have submitted DNA samples and have received results. The five pioneer participants used the Y-DNA37 test. The FamilyTreeDNA website explains that females would use the mtDNA test to trace lineage through female ancestors, while the Y tests apply only to males. Participants in the McIver Surname Project, therefore, must be male and share a common surname. Females who want to participate in this project should locate and arrange for a male relative from the surname line to be tested.
