DNA Day Sale - Big-Y $150 off

Jared Smith
 

I hope everyone is doing well. We haven't had any new tests on our
branch of the tree lately, but now is the optimal time for us to
recruit new Big-Y testers. Big-Y is on sale for only $450 through
Thursday of this week.

If everyone on this list would send just a couple e-mails to some of
their close Y-DNA matches, we likely could recruit several new
testers.

Someone asked for some positive messaging to help recruit Big-Y
testers, so I wrote the following, in case you'd like to use or modify
it:

*****
Big-Y testing maps the genetic tree of humanity. We're slowly mapping
every Y-DNA mutation to particular ancestors - some known by name and
some too ancient to be known. Even for very old common ancestors,
these markers provide a unique identifier for them - a way to identify
family tree connections that could not possibly be made using
genealogical records.

Traditional genealogy works from modern day and builds the tree
backward from us to our ancestors. Y-DNA genealogy works in reverse -
we've identified mutations in our ancient ancestors and are
identifying new cousin relationships, new branches, and more defined
family timelines with each new Big-Y test. For many family lines,
we're still very much in the early days of this research, but each new
test provides better clarity.

On our own Z16357 part of the Y-DNA tree
(http://dna.smithplanet.com/), we are getting much better defined
branches. We're getting closer to knowing geographies of some of our
ancestors - where and when they lived in the British Isles in the last
few thousand years. As we define and verify the individual mutations
that form new branches on our tree, we are paving the path for others
to eventually take very inexpensive DNA tests to see how their direct
male line connects with the rest of humanity. This future is only
possible if we pave the way by investing in Big-Y!

Happy to report that Kit 601582, my new project member, ordered Big-Y last Thursday. So there will soon be a Pillsbury SNP below the Hays-Pillsbury node on the R1b-L513 Tree.!

He is currently a member of R1b (Y-111 ), but not L21 or L513. His MDKA is  the same as  mine: Wm. Pilsbury, b. 1605 -- not yet updated on his account.

Cheers,

Fran Pillsbury

Fran -

That's excellent news! This will be a very nice addition to that
portion of the tree. I'll keep an eye out for the results, but when
you see them come in, ping me and I'll take a close look. It would be
especially helpful if I can get their raw data files to analyze.

It would be wonderful if this tester would join the group here.

Thanks,

Jared Smith

Hi Jared,

I was notified on the Hartley Family Tree Genealogy Facebook page that John Hartley has ordered an A11132 Test from YSEQ.
