Projects are designed to help individuals who may have similar ancestry connect with one another. You should consider participating in a project if:

  • You are looking for relevant matches.
  • You are interested in comparing against others.
  • You are open to sharing information and working together.

Note: Members may join or leave a project at any time; however, it is important to note that while Family Tree DNA does not impose a limit in the number of projects one can join, we will not tolerate joining multiple projects with the purpose of data mining or finding information that is not relevant to one’s personal ancestral origins. Family Tree DNA reserves the right to remove people from projects at its sole discretion or if it feels that a participant is abusing the system in a way that it may infringe another participant’s privacy.
