Description
Welcome, researchers of all Dodd/Dodds variant surnames!  We invite you to become a participant in the Dodd/Dodds Surname DNA Project.
We hope you will find in this project a new link to your respective family.


OUR CONTINUING GOAL

to break through brick walls in our research and ultimately
discover the origins of our ancestors.

With the tool of DNA testing we will unite family scattered around the globe, check lineage theories and oral histories of our ancestors, and find new ways to apply traditional historical research.

We urge those of you surnamed Dodd/Dodds of all possible nationalities or ethnicities to participate in this DNA study.
Background
Welcome, researchers of all Dodd/Dodds variant surnames. WE ARE LOOKING FOR MORE MALES with the Dodd/Dodds variant surname to do a simple swab test.

If you are a female of Dodd descent, we invite you to contribute to a fund to test a particular line of Dodds.

If your family is not currently in the DNA project, you can be the first. You may discover an unsuspected kinsman.

Those of you in Canada, Australia, New Zealand surely have cousins in the USA and Britain. Join us in finding those links.

The surname Dodd or Dodds is common throughout the English speaking world. But there are several Germanic variants. The 1880/81 census records list DOTTS, DODTS, DOTZ, DUTTS, DOOD surnames with recent connections to Germanic homelands. There was an early 1700's DODEN family in the colonies Where are these people now?

A study such as this gains it strength from numbers. The tool works best when the data pool grows.

Help us map the DODD/DODDS world!
Goals
We are targeting

the Dodd families who were present at the Revolution. If you have a Dodd/Dodds in America before 1775, please work to find a descendant to represent you!

Dodd/Dodds immigrants to America in the 1800's who may have ties to the Old World.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, any Dodd/Dodds outside the U.S. Canandians, Australians, New Zealanders, and of course, those of you in Great Britain and Europe, PLEASE join us in mapping the Dodd/Dodds genographic world!

If you are not included in one of the above groups, join just to show that there are all sorts of families with the surname Dodd/Dodds
variants!

DNA testing can help us sort out family groups and open new avenues for traditional archival research. It is not a quick solution but a powerful tool for the serious genealogist.

Because DNA is the clearest link to our most distant and nearest kinsmen, we acknowledge the need to protect the privacy of the DNA donors and living ancestors.

Test Choices and Costs
The 12 marker test is useful for proving kinship to a test group with a number of matching participants, if you have strong archival documentation that you belong to that group. However, its greatest value is in deep roots (pre recorded history) tracking instead of genealogy within the past 400 years.
The 25 marker test is the basic test for separating the Dodds into family groupings.
The 37 marker test is will show kinship to a specific group having a common ancestor, even if documentation is missing some links or the kinship is unknown.
The 67 marker test is designed to help separate branches within a group of kinsmen. This is important where documentation for earlier generations is limited.

Whichever you choose now, you can always upgrade later with an additional fee for the new testing.

Current Costs:
Y-DNA12 (12 marker test for $99)
Y-DNA25 (25 marker test for $148)
Y-DNA37 (37 marker test for $189)
Y-DNA67 (67 marker test for 269)

DNA collection kits involve a painless swabbing of the inside of the cheek. The kit comes to participants by mail and returned to the lab by mail.

You may pay online, by invoice, or if you choose by calling the Houston Family Tree DNA office (number is on the application form.)

TESTING LAB:
Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), affiliated with Dr. Michael Hammer and the University of Arizona, will be testing the Y-chromosome for genetic matches between males. DNA test results are placed in FTDNA's Y-DNA database and when 2 people show the same identical results, the lab will inform both parties (provided both signed the FTDNA Release Form). Project participants will receive a certificate and report from the lab generally describing Y-DNA sequencing and the meaning of the probability between matches.
