About us


- April 2015: L21 paper written which suggests SW England was a major point of dispersal for classic British R1b-L21 Y-DNA to the Continent

- Nov 2015: We have finally passed 100 members. Associate membership introduced for autosomal members


- Sep 2015. The new SNP packs have enabled us to show something we have always suspected - that Cornwall is full of ancient rare DNA from the early Bronze period around 2500 BC when Stonehenge was being constructed. In particular we have large  amounts of R-DF27, usually regarded as Hispanic - probably demonstrating the presence of an early "Atlantic culture" with heavy trading interchange of metals and grains.

- Nov 2014. After 3 years we have about 75 members, though we are looking for about 250 for meaningful analysis
