Miller DNA Project
For Anyone with the Last Name Miller

If your last name is Miller there is a good chance that you can find your distant ancestors by participating in the Miller DNA Project!

Any and all Miller's from anywhere and everywhere are invited to join!   With about 800 Miller's already tested and a database of hundreds of thousands DNA profiles, matches are more and more common.    Plus, DNA testing  will provide you details about the ancient migration pattern of your Miller line and information on the recent country of origin in Europe.

I encourage any male with the last name of Miller to participate in the Miller Surname DNA Project at    I don't receive any fees from and ask that any technical questions be directed to them at the e-mail addresses on their website. 

Q.  How is DNA Testing done?

A.   Simply by rubbing a cotton swab (provided by FamilyTreeDNA)  inside your cheek a few times and then mailing it back to FamilyTreeDNA.   A few weeks later you get your results and notification of all matches.   The  YDNA test (which is what I recommend) costs about $100.   You are also notified by e-mail if someone in the future tests and matches you.    I have had 4 matches.   One with a 5th cousin and most recently with a 6th or 7th cousin, which finally broke through a brick wall I had run into with my research.

Q.  Who has tested?

A.  About 800 Miller's from the United States and Europe,  plus a few from Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand.
