The Guthrie DNA Project utilizes Y-DNA testing to discover shared common ancestry along the direct paternal line. Because only men have Y-DNA, only men can take a Y-DNA test. In order to assess Guthrie DNA handed down from a paternal Guthrie ancestor, the person being tested must be a male Guthrie or a male with a known direct paternal Guthrie lineage, such as an adoptee.
Y-DNA tests suitable for inclusion in the project are those at the 37, 67, or 111-marker level. Tests from non-FTDNA facilities may be eligible for transfer.
Free DNA Testing or Partial Sponsorships available for certain lineages.
The list of Guthrie lineages approved for free Y-DNA Testing and partial sponsorships changes based on our current participation and our available funds. Check the FREE DNA TESTING page periodically
If you can cover the cost of your own test, please do so. But if your Guthrie line is on our "Most Wanted" list, please ask for partial or full sponsorship. The more lineages included in the project, the better view we have of the big family tree.
FAMILY FINDER TESTING
We do not sponsor Family Finder testing, nor officially include it in the online results. However, we are happy to link your Family Finder Kit to the Guthrie Project if you have Guthrie matches so that we can cross-check results and assist in matching up anyone who has Guthrie ancestry. Complete a JOIN REQUEST.
Both men and women are able to use Family Finder testing, which uses autosomal DNA to look at your overall genetic makeup. By comparing your DNA with matching segments of other people in its database, FTDNA can determine the degree of your relationship. Comparing your list of ancestors with another person's may help you to determine the source of your shared DNA.
