White Surname DNA Project- Background

Administrators

Surnames

White, Whyte, Wight, Wyght

Background

The White/Whyte surname project is primarily focused on the male Y-DNA prospective but is open to mitochondrial (mtDNA) from the female DNA history too. Realize that males pass their Y-DNA from father to son, but not to their daughters. Females have no Y-DNA but pass their maternal DNA to both their daughters and their sons. Their sons will not pass their Mom’s mtDNA, which will come from the son’s mate.

Please feel free to look through our list of Y-DNA & MTDNA results. We hope it may help our participants and others who are simply looking for their family history.

Participants are encouraged to list their earliest known ancestor. This will help us all in our family history search.

With over three hundred members, the White DNA project is one of the largest surname projects. Please help us make it one of the best.
