This project is an auxiliary to the FTDNA project of the same name. Add your ancestors who were Mennonite and Amish immigrants to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

From the project description at FTDNA: "This DNA Project focuses specifically on Mennonite and Amish Immigrants to Pennsylvania and their families and descendants. This project originated in October 2010 as the "DNA Pilot Project" through the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, Lancaster, Pa., in reference to the three hundred year anniversary of the first Mennonite settlers to what is now Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The project had expanded in May 2017 due to strong interest generated at the Lancaster Family History Conference, which had focused on eighty immigrant Mennonite families who joined the original dozen families seven years later in August 1717. The project not only includes these immigrant families, but seeks to have representation of all Mennonite and Amish families who arrived as immigrants in Pennsylvania in the 17th and 18th centuries."
