About us - Your Thompson DNA Project Co-Administrators:

Please note: The Thompson DNA Project co-administrators are volunteers and do not work for Family Tree DNA, DNA Heritage, Relative Genetics, or any other testing company.  We do not receive commissions or compensation of any kind.  We volunteer because we care about Thompson genealogy, and we want to help you use DNA results to help make genealogical connections.
