Jones Surname DNA Project< DNA tests
There is a Third Pary Transfer option for those who tested with Ancestry.com and a few others. Please let me know if this is the case with you. There is also the Family Finder test that shows close matches within 5 generations in either direction. These matches can be totally different surnames with no obvious connections at first. Paper trails can help connect to other people through this test. Please include some background information about your most distant Jones ancestor with your join request since I will ask for it before sending the join code. I ask this of all new members so that we can better understand and recruit new members. Requests without any information at all will only receive a request for more information before being sent the code to join. New memberbs are important so that we can expand our own DNA base. A sub-project has started to establish the Y chromosome signature of Matthew Jones, ca.1643-1712 of Mulberry Island, Warwick Co., VA. and his relationship to other Jones lines. Thank you.

I am adding the surnames Johns and Johnson to the group.

Before you purchase a kit, please make sure that you have sent information pertaining to your Jones ancestry. It is great to receive the oldest known Jones ancestor of your family tree. It is also important that you have a male Jones for the test to be done since the test traces the Y-Chromosome. If your source of DNA belongs to a different Surname Group, it is important that you join that particular group. If there is not a group for your particular surname, you can join an individual Haplogroup or geographical group. Also, if there no surname group to which you can join, you can always begin a group for your surname.
The Y-DNA Transfer program is the opportunity for those who previously Y-DNA tested at a Sorenson Genomics lab based company to take part in Family Tree DNA group projects and to retest at Family Tree DNA.
Transfer customers may choose a basic transfer of Y-DNA46 panel results that will allow them to view their results in a new account and to join group projects. These are the Transfer Y-DNA33 and the Transfer Y-DNA46. They do not include either database matching or haplogroup prediction.
Transfer customers may also choose to test the Y-DNA STR markers required for matching to Family Tree DNA's customers. These are the Transfer Y-DNA33 + Y-DNA25 and the Transfer Y-DNA46 + Y-DNA37. They include database matching and haplogroup prediction. However, they also require a new DNA sample.

Big NEWS - People who have tested with Ancestry, GeneTree or Sorensen's SMGF are now allowed to join FamilyTreeDNA for a small nominal fee. Their DNA results can be uploaded. For another small fee, other alleles will be tested to give the new members full access to the Group. The $19 will provide a Personal Page but they will not have full benefits as members do.
Spread the news.
I have added the Johns surname to the group.
