If you are a male Mitchell considering Y-DNA testing, Please consider joining us at the Mitchell DNA Project where over 400 Mitchells have tested so far.  See, 

You can see family lines that have already tested at:  and see the Paternal ancestor name column

Families tested include those in Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, Canada and US, and more. All Mitchells/Mitchels and other variations are welcome to test.

Y-Chromosome testing is limited to males and will trace the paternal line of the testee.  Matches will include persons that share a common male paternal ancestor within 8-12 generations (usually), depending on the match details.   

Women can enlist a male Mitchell relative to take the test.
