Welcome to the HILL DNA PROJECT

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.

Please UPDATE your FTDNA account.

If you have not logged on your FTDNA (Family Tree DNA) account in a while, please do so and make sure your contact information (ESPECIALLY YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS) is up-to-date. If your email address is no longer valid, matching participants will not be able to reach you.

The HILL project at FTDNA…..growing and growing!

There are 630 HILL participants at Family Tree DNA! The goal of the HILL DNA PROJECT website (the website you are viewing now) is to accurately group and display the results in a way that makes it easy for you to connect with other participants who share your ancestry as matched via DNA. Thank you for joining one of the first and largest DNA projects at FTDNA.

Please do not order 12 or 25 marker tests

If you are expecting results sufficient enough for being connected with one of our DNA Groups, PLEASE DO NOT order the 12 Marker or 25 Marker test. We no longer group testing results less than 37 Markers.

Minimum Testing Level

Starting May 11, 2013, new Y-DNA test participants who test less than 37 markers will no longer be Grouped here. Participants who have already tested  less than 37 markers with results that came in prior to May 11, 2013, will remain posted and Grouped accordingly, but we urge you to upgrade to at least 37 markers at your earliest convenience. 12 marker and 25 marker results are too inconclusive for the purpose of Grouping with others on this site, for it is our desire to keep the integrity of our matched Groups to the highest level possible.
