Q Big Y Testing March 2019

A look at FTDNA Y-DNA Testing

This week Brad Larkin wrote a very nice post about the distribution of samples on the Y-DNA tree by country. In it, he looks at many factors including world populations by country. I was really enjoying it until I got to one small paragraph about Y-DNA Q.

Disallowing Proxy and VPN Traffic

I regret having to write that I am no longer allowing PROXY and VPN traffic to the Haplogroup website. Over the past two years the amount of automated ‘bot’ traffic to the site has placed a sever strain on my resources. I do not think this will impact most of my project members. If it does though, please send me the information for the PROXY or VPN you use. I will gladly add you to the whitelist.

Laura's Lost Pet Services

Laura’s #GivingTuesday Fundraiser for Laura’s Lost Pet Services, Inc.

Giving Tuesday has come to follow Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a chance to return to our Thankful celebration of what we have by helping others. This year, I am helping my friend Laura Weitner. Laura is raising funds for her non-profit lost pet finding service. Laura has her own pets, a job, and family. Every day though she helps people in her community find their lost animals. She does this out of kindness and love of animals. She also helps capture and rehabilitate the homeless ‘neighborhood dogs’ of West Virginia. This work often involves long nights waiting for a dog to enter a humane trap and potential bites.
