R-L21 Project benefits include:
1) SNP test recommendations
.... a. SNP Packs versus Big Y versus single SNP testing
.... b. SNP Pack selection including STR predictive analysis
.... c. Big Y analysis advice
2) Enduring record of Y testing results and Most Distant Known Ancestor information in a system built for posterity (future descendants, other relatives, and history)
3) Largest database of R1b-L21 people for matching, new result tracking and support of genealogy, surnames and related discussion
4) Discussion of prehistoric, archaeological data and the historical background of our deep ancestry
5) Statistics available by subclade, geography, surname and more. Genetic distances, STR frequencies, variances, averages, means and modals for any selected subgroup

This is a public project. When you join you're making surname, ancestor and DNA related results public, from which they can never be fully retracted. Do not join if you don't want to share publicly. We do not publish your full name or contact info and try to respect privacy.


Please consider BIG Y or SNP Packs and 111 STRs. Read About/Background Welcome project page and get help as needed.
