The JAMAICA DNA Project welcomes everyone with direct Jamaican Y-DNA (father line) or mtDNA (maternal line) heritage. The goal of this project is to match up individuals or families who share direct male or direct female Jamaican ancestry and to trace their origins back to Africa, Europe and Asia.
This is a geographical project involving a Y - Chromosome study and a mitochondrial DNA project. Participants must have direct paternal line ancestry in Jamaica or direct maternal line ancestry in Jamaica. The primary goal is to help family historians trace their ancestry and identify genetic cousins.
