Dillman DNA Project

Welcome to the Dillman DNA (DDNA) Project. This project was started in October 2002 is hosted by the Dillman Family Association (DFA). The DDNA continues to grow in membership and importance to all Dillman researchers. As of May 2012 the DDNA currently has 50 members, two of which have tested mtDNA, and 15 distinct Dillman family lines.

FamilyTreeDNA has placed their web pages in Deutsch, Italiano, Espanol and English for our European cousins.

The privacy of participants will be protected by the administrator in addition to all members. Participants will only be referred to by their DNA test kit number. As is standard practice, only information on ancestors who were born prior to 1910 will be posted on the web site.

The National Geographic Society, IBM, geneticist Spencer Wells, and the Waitt Family Foundation have launched the Genographic Project. This is a five-year effort to understand the human journey: where we came from and how we got to where we live today. This unprecedented effort will map humanity's genetic journey through the ages. The DDNA project has two members from this project and we expect many more as 40,000 kits have been completed in the project's first five weeks - an amazing boost to all genealogists using DNA.
