The Scottish DNA Project currently has over 5800 participants who have tested with Family Tree DNA.

How to join: If you have never had your DNA tested there is a discounted price available by joining through the project.

Click on the following link to begin the process for your own Family Tree DNA test http://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Scottish-Clans&code=R56404

- Login to your FTDNA account.
- At the top of the page you will see the 'Projects' tab. Go to 'Manage Projects'.

Third Party upload deal from Family Tree DNA
If you tested with another company you may now transfer your Y-DNA results if they used the Sorenson 33 or 46-marker test. This includes results from Ancestry.com, GeneTree, and Sorenson's SMGF. 

Third Party upload deal from Family Tree DNA available here:

Deep ancestry testing
If you are interested in 'deep ancestry' whether it is male or female origins, we would presently recommend the National Genographic Project Geno 2 kit. The test costs approximately £124 ($199.95).

The Geno 2 kit tests 12,316 Y-Chromosome SNPs and 3,352 mtDNA SNPs mitochondrial SNPs.

Test results from the National Genographic Project can be transferred into the Family Tree DNA database (and attached to your kit number if you have already tested with FTDNA).

ScotlandsDNA testing company
This company only test markers called SNPs for 'deep ancestral' origin. If you are a male and have tested with ScotlandsDNA we would recommend that you take the 37 marker Y-DNA test with Family Tree DNA which will enable you to participate in the Scottish DNA Project. The results from this test will potentially give you matches within a genealogical time frame.

If you are a female and have taken the maternal line test with ScotlandsDNA or taken the paternal line test with ScotlandsDNA, you can if you wish email your results along with information on the origin of your earliest known maternal / paternal ancestor to scottishdna@strath.ac.uk
Unfortunately we cannot at present include these within the project results.
