The Slaven DNA Project uses FamilyTreeDNA for Y-DNA testing to answer the questions above. (A Slavin Project was also established at Relative Genetics; they were purchased by Ancestry; they no longer sell Y-DNA tests. FTDNA purchased another testing company used by our project, DNA Heritage.)
Markers on the Y-chromosome are analyzed and compared to determine the likelihood the participants share a common ancestor. See the Frequently Answered Questions page for general questions about surname studies and links to further information. Or email me with your questions.
In addition, here's a blog post that a does good job at explaining why, when you look at your results at FTDNA, you're going to see matches with men with other surnames.
To participate in the study, contact me. You will need to use a special link when ordering your kit from FTDNA so that you receive the project discount (~$20 less than regular price) and for your results to be included in our project.
