Q-M242 Tree Updates at Family Tree DNA and ISOGG

Both Family Tree DNA and ISOGG (The International Society of Genetic Genealogy) have recently updated their trees for Y-DNA Haplogroup Q-M242. While some minor changes may be needed, this is a massive improvement. The project would like to thank Ray Banks and Katherine Borges of ISOGG and Michael Sager of Family Tree DNA for their efforts.

The Q-Y2200 Tree & the Q-L245 SNP Pack

They talk about not being able to see the forest for the trees. For Q-Y2200, this is not our problem. We have found many of the Jewish Q trees in the forest, and we know that Q-Y2200 is one tree. The problem is that we cannot puzzle out the trees and their branches by looking at the leaves.

Mahican BIG Y Testing

The project has the opportunity to BIG Y test the descendant of Toanunck who was a Mahican from the Egremont, Berkshire County, Massachusetts area before he moved to what is now West Virginia and changed his name to Jacob Van Gilder. To do this during the current SALE at Family Tree DNA would cost the project $450.
