About us

Aug 29, 2014 - There are now 13 members enrolled in the project.  Thank you all for inviting your closest matches in surname projects.  The project managers have sent invitations to all the known positives for the FGC11134, A286, and L96, which we have contact information available.

Oct 3, 2014 - An INDEL previously thought to be CTS4466 equivalent has been confirmed in our L96 Big Y tester's BAM.  The A286 and FGC11134 BAMs are ancestral.  This tentatively moves A146/Z16250 to a parent position for L96 and CTS4466.  In doing so, it seems to confirm the hypothesis that L96 and CTS4466 are more closely related by their STR signature ranges.  The experimental tree has been updated, but more testing is needed for an ISOGG submission.

Nov 8, 2014 - FGC11134 has been recognized by ISOGG and added to the 2014 tree.  It takes L96's previous designation, R1b1a2a1a2c1c.  L96 is now R1b1a2a1a2c1c1.  CTS4466 moves to R1b1a2a1a2c1c2.  This happens before the full results of a 20 member panel of DF13 downstream individuals has been returned.  While the placement is most likely correct, more changes may be in store.

Nov 13, 2014 - A286 has been recognized by ISOGG and added to the 2014 tree.  R1b1a2a1a2c1c3 is the newly assigned position.  A possible fourth branch is being investigated.

May 27, 2015 - New branches!  FGC11293 has been on the chart for some time, but not mentioned in the news.  The branch is currently mostly English in makeup.  The second was found by Alex Williamson, and we've confirmed his observation.  A recent Big Y tester matches HG01079 from the 1000 Genomes project.  The two men share a block of 13 SNPs suggesting an MRCA similar to the current L96 testers.  For the moment we will be using CTS1133 to mark the branch.
