J-M172 Y-DNA Project
** Important Notice **
December 3, 2012.
The “hibernation” of the Y-DNA haplogroup J2 project has now ended, – conditions are now such that I can now begin to initiate changes to move the project in a positive new direction…. Next year, the J2 haplogroup project will have a new structure and new member driven goals – there will be a team of co-admins. The old “Haplogroup J2 Y-DNA project” will have its original research goals answered and will be completed. The FTDNA J2 DNA group itself won’t end, – instead it will be transformed into effectively a new entity – the J-M172 project. The J-M172 project will “begin with a clean slate” so to speak, operated by a team of admins. Some of these different co-admins will have their own speciality areas, that they are in charge of (eg. some people will be in charge of J2a-L24, some in charge of J2b etc…)… Before this new J2 project incarnation can fully emerge, there will be a period of metamorphosis over the next few months. Behind the scenes, this process has already begun. An expanded version of the update above can be seen on Angela's DNA blog here.

Welcome to the J-M72 Project!
This DNA Project welcomes all people who are tested to belong to Y-DNA haplogroup J-M172 (J2 M172). The "J-M72 Project" compiles and studies Y-DNA test results for genealogic purposes, we also aim to connect individuals interested in exploring their family history and promote the use of genetic testing to assist genealogical research. The project is open for anyone who has been tested by FamilyTreeDNA or The National Geographic Project. If you like to participate, you can join this project by clicking the link below and follow the instructions.
