It seems like with the people that we had, all the branching that
was going to happen already happened. The good news is that
Michael Hartley has expressed interest in the Big Y. This could
produce some extra resolution between your branch of YDNA and
I think that the reason I have some named SNPs is that I believe
my Hartley administrator, William Hartley, probably went in and
named some of my SNPs after I took the Big Y test.
Sorry for your disappointment. As you know, this BigY is a long
term thing. It's good to be a pioneer, but being way out in front
of the pack can be lonely!

Yes, I now form a new theoretical branch from
Z17911 (well, theoretical until I can get a closer cousin to

is a sibling to the BY11573 branch with Thomas, Bennett,
Merrick, and Goff. As soon as I can update it, I'll add my pink
box to the SNP tree.
Of note is that your Hartley theoretical branch is depicted
with A11130, but that just represents one of the dozen or so
private SNPs that have been identified for you. My box will
also fill with a dozen or so of similar (but not yet named)
Joel, you are also my top match, followed by Bennett, then
Thomas, as you'd expect considering these results.
I'm a bit disappointed that no new branches were formed
with my results, but this paves the road for others to follow.
Now to redouble my research efforts to find a distant Smith
