J-M172 Y-DNA Project
January 2 2013
Angela is currently in the middle of a major rearrangement of the project results tables. A major announcement will be made (hopefully) within the next week (assuming no earthquakes, zombie apocalypses etc..)...

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.
