RomanyDNA Project is not to any further extent a “*remote* Romany ancestry’s research group”.
This group is a specific ethnic DNA research project for verified (or verifiable by DNA) Romany people and Clans (Vitsa).
Ancestors claimed as “possibly” Romany extremely far back in join applicants’ family-trees are not considerable.
Too small single segments’ matches (under 11 cM) with JUST a few Romany people or surnames are NOT valuable for our DNA research project.
The RomanyDNA project needs people with actual Rom, Sinti, Kale and GITANO's Chromosome’s segments to run DNA tools and segments’ triangulations; even a single wrong sample will divert calculations and clan’s clusters.
Picking up randomly a family name from our surnames list to subscribe to this project (when the surname is not certified in the applicant’s ancestor tree) is a red alert for the membership scrutinizers team.
People do not realize how small the Romany world is, due to sad historical bottle-necks in our population.
We had reiterated interferences in the past from racists or simple "novelists" and even scientific researches or students who claim to be Rom or to have had Romany ancestry in order to gain information and use our (@CC) researches, surnames, pictures or family histories for personal purposes and their novels and magicians' careers: always out of Romany people's fates. We had too many bad experiences and we had to Protect the Privacy of the members in our project.
