The Slaven DNA Project uses FamilyTreeDNA for 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.

To participate in the study, contact me. You will need to use a special group number when ordering your kit from one of the testing companies so that you receive the project discount (~$20 less than regular prices) and for your results to be included in our project.
