Miller Family History


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. 

In addition to the YDNA and FamilyFinder tests, at, I highly recommend the DNA test at which is available to both males and females. DNA Tests:

I recommend taking both the YDNA and the FamilyFinder tests here.

YDNA: (only for males)

There are several options for the YDNA test. My personal recommendation is to begin with the cheapest which is the YDNA12. That is not listed on their website but can be ordered by phone 1-713-868-1438. I think it is $49. Or you can order the YDNA37 for $169 online at: YDNA


This test is straight forward and can be taken by both males and females. It can be ordered online at: FamilyFinder DNA Test:
