This is great news! Another person on our branch!
If desired, you could "Wish a SNP" at YSEQ for some of the other Hartley SNPs. If they can test them, then John could take some additional tests (at $17.50 each) to discover where his branch falls.
It's difficult to know which SNPs to recommend to test. We know that in addition to A11132, you and Michael share A11134, A11135, A11137, A11139, and A11140. Based on the age predictions (I have these SNPs as being between 912 and 395 years ago), most or all of these probably pre-date the Hartley surname, so it's most likely that John has these too.
You could instead (or in addition) "Wish a SNP" for some of your and Michael's novel variants to see if John falls on your or Michael's Hartley branch. A11133, A11136, A11130, A11131 would be the best ones from your branch. I could recommend some for Michael too.
If there was a prospect of several more Hartley testers, we could put together a Hartley SNP Panel with maybe 8-12 SNPs (at $116-$169) that would be a good set for Hartley people to get good fidelity for where they fall on the Hartley branches. With a few testers, we'd almost certainly find some new branches this way, though no new SNPs (Big-Y's the only path to these).
