About us

The new developments in genetics are proceeding at a rapid clip!

Thanks to the fact that so many members have done advanced marker testing, Walk on the Y, Geno 2.O, Big Y and FGC Y-testing, not to mention lots of individual SNP explorations!  We have established additional subclades of our main J2a-L24 branch and are contributing to genetic history...I have posted many new charts and other resources under LINKS...check it out!

This page may not be regularly updated but all group members hear from me directly about developments.  So, if you want to know more, please join up!  (How's that for a bribe?)


CAVEAT---I am a volunteer administrator, so I must admit that daily life often impinges into my research and analysis time! 

BIGY700 FOCUS:  One part of our project I am trying to tackle sooner rather than later is working with folks in the J-L24 Project to see what insights we can extract from the many Big Y tests that are flooding in.  My first focus has been on the 160+ folks at or downstream of the mutation (SNP) PF4992---that's pretty far down the tree and we are finding we can draw some interesting conclusions about recent (last 100-2500 year) migrations between members as well as possible links to ancient ancestors in the Levant ca 500 BCE to 500 CE.  The lessons learned there are now being applied to other clusters, such as those in the J-L70 branch and the J-F3133/Z7700 branch, to name just a few.

Meanwhile, I am available for consultation, discussion or shipment of chocolate at any time: d
