Maybe I should keep this under my hat, but I wasn't asked to do so, and I don't think it does any harm to mention it, so here goes.

Anyway, I wrote Bennett Greenspan a few days ago and asked him to consider adding a test for the T-13910 allele to FTDNA's list of "Factoid" tests. He made no promises or commitments, but he did say FTDNA is "looking into it".

I told him I think there would be a market for such a test. I would order it myself. I also think it would be a neat way to gather data on T-13910, perhaps with a project (not that I need to administer any more projects!).

Maybe if a few more people wrote FTDNA and expressed an interest in this test, it would expedite matters.

Could that give weight to the R1b pastoral, IE ideas?

If R1b men have a higher rate of T-13910 that men in other y haplogroups, it might tend to support a pastoralist connection. I am less sure that it does anything for proof of IE origins.
