The whole project is under reconstruction. It may take me some months to complete.
It was begun by Charlie SCOTT many years ago. (Thank you Charlie).
However, he has now handed it over to me, so I have inherited a huge legacy and hope to do him proud.
I am Gail Riddell, your new administrator and you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The SCOTT Surname Project is open to all persons (whether male or female) from any part of the world and who bear the surname SCOTT.
The project is focussed on the results of men testing their short tandem repeats (STRs) on their Y Chromosome, sometimes called Y-DNA.
(To partake in this aspect of the project, the men must test their Y chromosome).
Although there is nothing wrong with testing Y-12 (and may even be recommended in some situations), usually, I can do nothing with such results unless you forwarn me as to why you are testing.
My preference is Y-67, because this enables me to clearly establish which category (which family) your paternal line belongs.
It also enables me to run numerous calculations across the group (into which I place you) and provide further information.
Because women do not have a Y chromosome, they can test their autosomes (also recommended for men) and join this project. These results are not publicly displayed in the project, but I am seeking a way that I can do this whilst maintaining your privacy.
I look forward to hearing from you when you are able.
