Welcome to the HILL DNA Project, a scientific approach to finding our ancestors including Hill, Hills, and other variants of the name. Since 2002, our project has been one of the largest DNA surname support groups affiliated with Family Tree DNA. We have more than six hundred participants and have identified more than sixty distinct Hill lines. Enjoy the website!
Here is how it works. Simply go to Family Tree DNA (www.familytreedna.com) and order your test kit. We suggest ordering at least the 37 marker Y-DNA test. Most of our participants have been tested at the 67 marker level. Family Tree DNA will send you your test kit. Follow the instructions and send your kit in. You will be given an account page at Family Tree DNA (make sure you join the Hill DNA group through your account page). After about five weeks, your results will be reported to you, and if you have joined the Hill DNA group, your results will simultaneously be reported to us here at www.hilldna.com. We will group you with your matched HILL group at the Family Tree DNA website and here on this website. What we offer here (for free) is a more detailed place for you to share information with your fellow matched participants. We also maintain an Unmatched Participants page for those whose DNA is in process or for those still awaiting a match.
