September 2012 – The Virginia-A Group initates an effort to extend testing to 111-markers, it's the only way they'll be able to parse the William/Henry/Luke lines!

August 2010 – The website has been updated to reflect contemporary information: New groups have been formed, information has been added, and analyses reflective of what we now know about the various groups have been included; when new information is discovered we will try to post it in a timely fashion.
