Dear Qs, Most of you will have received an e-mail this morning about the new Q-L245 SNP Pack at Family Tree DNA. This has been a work of many months. The Names Behind the Work [...]
Simply put, Q-PF3805 is a new male lineage branch of the tree under Q-Z780. Such brevity though masks the story of how we came to know it, and much of its value is in the [...]
I am polishing up my travel plans for the Institute for Genetic Genealogy conference in DC next month, and thought you dear readers could use a vacation from Y-DNA Q talk. Here then is the [...]
Q-L191 was another gift-marker. Like Q-L456, it was found during a Sanger SNP test for another marker. Unfortunately for the project, it took us many months and many more L191 results to discover just which Q-M346 population it joined. The project still has only three members who are positive. All trace their origins to Chihuahua State, Mexico.
Big Y progress and testing in the Q-M242 project is going exceptionally well. So far, we have results for 34 men. Kit Surname Project Subgroup 53601 Jackson F1096 > M25 | Q-M25 180029 Cwiklak F1096 [...]
Q-L456 was one of the project’s gift-markers. It was discovered in the process of SNP testing someone for M346 and L213 using traditional Sanger sequencing. For a long time, the project lacked anyone willing to [...]
Y-DNA Q-Z780 was one of the earliest discoveries to come out of the 1K Genomes project. It was documented on the now defunct DNA-Forums website. Without an archive it is hard to be sure of [...]
