Re: New Hartley/Smith SNP block?
Congrats on the new discovery, Jared! With your extensive knowledge and help I hope there are many more discoveries for each of us in the group.

It's official - my terminal SNP is now A11138! FTDNA did a BAM analysis to verify this and has added this SNP to the tree. I've updated my charts at http://dna.smithplanet.com/snp I also added a bit more aging info.
Because we now know that A11138 is above the A11132 block and not below it as a novel variant with Joel, this does decrease the number of novel variants Joel has, effectively moving the shared Hartley ancestor date for Joel and Michael back a bit (at least according to the math of my calculations).
This also places the Hartley/Smith ancestor just below Z17911 somewhere around 800 years ago (give or take a century or so).
It is quite incredible that just a few months ago we had no branches below Z17911, and now we have 7 downstream branches with 13 known shared SNPs!
