Welcome to the Matthews/Mathews/ Mathis/Matthis Surname DNA Project

This Surname DNA Project exists to help identify the Genetic Genealogy of current living bloodlines for the Matthews, Mathews, Mathis, Matthis (and other variant) surnames.
The project uses the laboratory and database services of Family Tree DNA, a pioneer in the growing field of Genetic Genealogy, to provide DNA testing and analytical services.
Any adult male Matthews, Mathews, Mathis, Matthis (or variant) is invited to join in this project, which will help identify and confirm family line connections among us.

Have you hit a brick wall in your research?   Can't find the documentation for that elusive ancestor?  Are you wondering if you are related to a specific Matthews, Mathews, Mathis, or Matthis family?  The purpose of this study is to help prove or disprove connections among various Matthews/Mathews/Mathis/Matthis family lines, in order to enhance the documented genealogy and help break down those brick walls.  With the advent of genetic genealogy, some light may be shed on certain suspected relationships that could not previously be documented.
