French Heritage DNA Project
Sponsored by the French Canadian Heritage Society of California and
the Southern California Genealogical Society.
French Heritage DNA Project is dedicated to the hundreds of
founding ancestors who came primarily from France to Canada in the 17th century.
Our membership consists of persons of French, French-Canadian, Acadian, Métis,
and/or Cajun descent. The French Heritage DNA project tracks members' YDNA and
mtDNA signatures, associated haplogroups and SPs, patriarchal and matriarchal
names and their origins (including Acadian, Amerindian, and other historical
notes). We post anonymous test results on the Web in order to increase project
participation and facilitate collaboration among interested parties.

- To confirm or reject paper trail genealogical descendancy claims
- To provide a mechanism through which cross-cultural surnames can be associated
- To support FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) surname, lineage, and
