A new series of SNPs labelled FTT-have been detected in BigY results, according to the T2T consortium, and provisionally adopted by FTDNA. They have made some important breakthroughs in the Stewart DNA Project in the R-L21>>L745/L746Y-tree., specifically within the S781 (Appin) and the ZZ52 subsections.

There has been a change of administration in the Royal Stewart Project.  The new Administrators are Belinda Dettmann and Kathi Bobb.

10 Nov 2010.  After the discovery of a Royal Stewart haplotype in the Stewart DNA Project, a separate Royal Stewart Project was approved, with William Stewart as Project Administrator.
