  • LDS DNA projects

    I noticed reading the forum that someone mentioned that LDS has done DNA testing. Does LDS have a web site about what surnames they have in their DNA projects or is it private ?

    Hey Ladybug,

    Do you know this site?

    Official website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Find messages of Christ to uplift your soul and invite the Spirit.

    Asking around there is your best bet.

    Best Regards,

        Thanks, JohnnyB, Have tried both the LDS sites and can't find anything, the email won't go thru. Even called local LDS library and they say they don't know. Best I can do for now. Ladybug

          You're probably thinking of the "Molecular Genealogy" project, originally associated with Brigham Young University and recently transferred to the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation in Salt Lake City.

          SMGF provides the latest news and medical reviews on health supplements and products how it affects your health, diet, fertility and genetics

          That was never an LDS project per se. As the SMGF explains on their website, it is a research project which will not bear fruit for several years. They are focusing on markers found on all the chromosomes, not just Y and mtDNA. People who volunteer to participate will not receive any personal results from the study, but they will have the satisfaction of contributing to new methods if the theories pan out.
