Welcome to the Daniel DNA Project web site! This project was started in June 2002, and is using Y chromosome DNA testing to determine connections between men with the surname Daniel, and variant spellings, including Daniels, Dannel, Daniell, O'Daniel, Donnel, O'Donnel, Donald, McDaniel, McDonald, McDonnel, etc. The goal of this project is to identify connections between families to assist participants in determining their ancestry.
Use the links above to check out our results and to see which lines are currently participating. There is also a page for those who are looking for a Daniel male from their line to participate in the project and who are willing to pay part or all of the costs for testing.
Contact the Project Manager(s) with any questions or comments.
