<This time I won't say someone, I'll say FTDNA. FTDNA should notify
patrons when their SNPs are complete and a haplogroup confirmed, *and*
tell them of the existence of their haplogroup project. A link to the
appropriate page would be appreciated, too. Trying to locate my uncle's
matches in various projects I've come across many *R1b1b2a1b5b*
haplogroup designations next to names or kit numbers that aren't on the
R-M222 results page.
(Hope I wasn't one who nagged you about this, but I'm not so sure that I
Several people mentioned the difficulty and I couldn't locate the M222
project myself except through Google. I agree with you about FTDNA. We
now have somewhere around 530 in the project itself and I know there are
a lot more M222 types out there in the FTDNA databases and Ysearch. It's
nice to have all the DNA samples in one place - especially for projects
like David Wilson's latest chart. I know other DNA researchers
routinely use the project for their own TMRCA calculations.
I'm glad you spoke up.
