Welcome, based on my own testing those with share the R (Same as William Hale b1832) lineage are being invited to join the following DNA project dedicated to learning more about our very rare strain of Y DNA.

There may be descendants of Hiram Pipes b. 1785 Wilkes County, NC who join the Piper project to see if their YDNA matches that of known descendants of Captain John Pipes (Jr.) or John Pipes, Sr.    Please use Hiram as your last "known" patriarche instead of either John Pipes' Jr or Sr. so that we know that you are a descendant of Hiram.  That will be in the only way others will be able to identify this line.  Hopefully we can solve this longstanding mystery! Thanks!

FTDNA has issued a $100.00  code for their Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) test Big Y.  The code is BIGY100 and will be good through Sunday, 11 October 2015.  The ordinary price of this test is $575.00, so the  will reduce that to $475.00.  This is a good , but the price is still pretty high for most of our budgets.  That said, this is essentially a "one and done" test for your yDNA testing.  It will give you all your SNP mutations, both "public" (reviewed and accepted by someone) and "private" (sometimes also called "novel").  Many people recommend that you download your file after you receive your results and pay an additional $50.00 to have your results analyzed by one of the expert DNA interpretative companies.  I have seen examples of YFull's reports and they are very elaborate, including showing results for 479 STRs in addition to all your SNPs.  Moreover, you can send your file to the Big Tree and have your results posted with a large number of other men where you can see how you fit in.  From what I understand, this will complete your yDNA testing, at least for now.

One Member of our Project has taken the Big Y test.  We owe a debt of gratitude to these pioneers because they are discovering the unknown SNPs which get added to Haplotrees that the rest of us can then test for in our Kits.  In addition, the mutations discovered by these tests bring SNP testing potentially into the realm of genealogical time where STRs reside.

To order this test click on the blue "Upgrade" button in the upper right corner of your myDashboard page.  Be sure you remember to enter the  code in the appropriate place.

Administrators have just been informed that the special $79.00 price on the R1b-M343 Backbone test will only be good until this coming Monday morning (12 October 2015).  So, if you are interested in purchasing this test, you should move quickly.  Also, if you do, the ordering software may give you a different price than the promotional $79.00 before Monday.  If it does, go ahead and place your order and let me know because I will get a refund for you from FTDNA's Group Administration, which they say they "will help honor" in that case.

I just received my BigY results and am listed as RZ307 as well.  I am participating in a study re: a Scottish prisoner of war named David Hamilton who landed in America in 1651.

I would like to thank another Project Member for an additional contribution to our General Fund.  But please be sure to send me an e-mail with your Kit number on it if you do not include that number as part of your contribution message because my Group Administrator Page does not give me connected information about which Project Member has made the contribution.

Current Total General Fund Balance:    $125.00

Current Total Approval Votes:    50

As you may have already read, FTDNA is once again offering the R1b Backbone Panel that over 1,500 customers have so far taken, for the original price of just $79.00.  This is a bargain at basically the cost of two individual SNP tests, even though it will check for over 140 SNPs you may have.  There are many men in our Project who are estimated or confirmed to be at the R-M269 (R1b1a2) level who could discover which of the many outer branches of Y-DNA Haplogroup R1b they are in.  As you test farther out, you could discover which specific ethnic region in Europe your direct male ancestor came from, particularly if you have already tested at the higher STR levels and join those Projects that specialize in specific branches.  The Administrators of those Projects are experts on the various subclades and can guide you on what further testing you can do.  There are two groups of men, however, who should not take this test.  If you are in a Lineage where someone has already tested much farther out than the basic R-M269 SNP or you have or plan to take a relatively expensive Next Generaton Sequencing (NGS), such as Big-Y, then there is no need to take this test.

I am the E1a1 m44 project admin and happened to see you have a  member 2151085 Voss who is a member of the E1a project.  Because of his markers, we suspect he is E1a1 M44 .   Our project had developed a number of downstream SNP tests he may find useful.  Our project is at  .  We have been working with ISOGG on this for some time now.  Our current subclades – some experimental  - are viewable at 
PLease join our project.   DOug Phelps

hi, im in the uk, and my paternal line derives from around standish in lancashire where we appear to have been a family of blacksmiths upto the mid 18th century (my line at least).

ive recently had my dna investigated (by 23andme) and ive found i have quite a lot of distant relations in america (including jimmy buffet).  as shaw is the 126th most common name in america (according to 23andme) its pretty likely that somewhere in my ancestral tree some people migrated there.

i also note that the creator of the bowie knife (james black if i remember rightly) was taught and became son in law of a william shaw - blacksmith.

so im wondering if any one here from the usa knows of any immigrant from lancashire by the name of shaw, particually if its an alexander, john, william or thomas, or is there a website listing early immigrants? (i know of ones from the mid 19th cent but thats too late for me).
