GeneTree Offers Deal for Y-DNA Donors to SMGF Database
Posted by Diane

If you’re one of the tens of thousands of men who donated DNA samples and pedigree information to the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMGF), your genealogical largesse is being rewarded.

Genetic-genealogy and social networking site GeneTree is extending a special offer to SMGF Y-DNA donors.

Those men didn’t receive test results when they donated their Y-DNA to SMGF’s project, which began in 2000, to build a database linking genetic and genealogical information. The free SMGF database now holds details on 7 million ancestors and represents more than 170 countries.

But now, those Y-DNA donors can access their Y-DNA test results for $49.50 through GeneTree (about a third of GeneTree's regular cost for a test). To take advantage of this offer, follow the instructions on GeneTree

(Donors of mitochondrial DNA, which mothers pass on to their offspring, received a similar offer last year to access their mtDNA results.)

I would like to donate my Ancestry.com Y-46 test results to SMGF. However, the last time I corresponded with them, they said I could not access any "matches". If I can't find potential matches, what's the point? I give, they don't.

If this policy has changed, kindly let me know.

Regards,

Mike Barberi

Hi,Mike,
It sounds like you want to enter your Ancestry DNA results in SMGF's database? At http://www.smgf.org/get_involved.jspx , if you click Become and SMGF Participant, you're instructed to register for a free GeneTree account and enter test results through your account profile.

I'm not familiar enough with SMGF's policies and business procedures to give further advice, but here's the contact page: http://www.smgf.org/pages/contact.jspx
