What is the process for giving Michael Hartley a provisional
identifying named SNP (or SNPs) of his own? Are we waiting for the
best SNP before we name one? Also who does the naming? I think
that when I did my BigY, William Hartley, the administer of the
Hartley YDNA Project went in and named a bunch of my SNPs. I'm not
sure why this didn't happen for Michael.

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
This also places the Hartley/Smith ancestor just below
Z17911 somewhere around 800 years ago (give or take a century
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!
