Informal Ackley DNA Project on GEDmatch
If you would like to participate in an informal Ackley DNA project on GEDmatch (web address is www.gedmatch.com), send me your kit number and I will add it to this list. Anyone who has Ackley ancestors in their family tree is welcome to participate. The purpose behind this project is to allow anyone with Ackley ancestors to compare their autosomal DNA test results from Ancestry, Family Tree DNA, and 23andMe to any other participant to look for family relationships. If you upload your results to GEDmatch, you can compare your results to any of the kits in this list as well as any kit that has been uploaded by any user.

Ackley Group Project on Family Tree DNA
If you have results on Family Tree DNA (either you tested with them or paid a fee to transfer from another testing company), you can participate in the formal Ackley surname project that has been set up there. Up until mid-February 2016, the project seemed to be inactive; the link to the project home page was broken, and there was no project administrator listed. I was able to get Family Tree DNA to restore the project and volunteered to be the administrator, so it is back up and running. Although there is not much on it yet, there is a project website on FTDNA at https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/ackley.
