The Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation was inspired by discussions in 1999 between philanthropist James LeVoy Sorenson and BYU Professor Scott Woodward about using DNA in genealogy.

Since that time, SMGF has collected more than 100,000 DNA samples, together with four-generation pedigree charts, from volunteers in more than 100 countries around the world.

Y-chromosome DNA results and pedigree charts are available for searching in the Sorenson Database. Y-DNA results and pedigrees help you trace your direct paternal line.

Mitochondrial DNA results and pedigree charts are available for searching in the Sorenson Database. Mitochondrial DNA results and pedigrees help you trace your direct maternal line.

"I can't think of anything that matters more than reminding people everywhere that in a very real sense, we are all brothers and sisters," says Mr. Sorenson about our genetic connections.

"In all of us, there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage—to know who we are and where we came from."
