Add Your Family Lineage

This section of our project website is perhaps the most valuable for researchers seeking clues for their family histories. Finding a DNA match with another participant is of little value if neither of you have provided information about your specific lines.

Note

Pedigrees posted to this site are not guaranteed for accuracy by the Griffith DNA Project, but are the submissions of the individual DNA participants. Any data provided should always be independently verified by the researcher wishing to use the information. Pedigrees are grouped by surname and listed in the order in which they were submitted for posting.
