A Geographic Project connects individuals whose direct line comes from a specific location. The focus of a Geographic Project may be for a town, county, country, or region. We have three different types of Geographic Projects: Y-DNA, mtDNA, and Dual Geographic Projects.

Y-DNA Geographic projects are for those who have taken a Y-Chromosome DNA (Y-DNA) test. MtDNA Geographic Projects are for individuals who have taken a mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) test. Dual Geographic Projects are for individuals who order an mtDNA or Y-DNA test. Either their direct maternal line or direct paternal line originates in this area.

If your direct maternal or direct paternal line does not come from the location, you may have a relative test.
