BIG Y Testing a Scott Surname Male Q-YP1462

The project has the opportunity to test an Native Americas male with the SCOTT surname. His Y-STR markers make him a distant match to the FREEMAN group on the Q-YP1462 branch of Q-M3. This links him to other Algonquian lineages.

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.
