Wanted to let you know that an R-L165/S68 Project has been started (in January 2011) at FTDNA. Here's the link:http://www.familytreedna.com/public/R-L165Project/default.aspx?section=ycolorized
We're still setting up and recruiting possibles......We're seeing what appear to be clusters i.e. the Black Sub-Group of MacDonald with MacNeils of Barra and Buies of Jura....we have ordered tests for a Buie and and are hoping for a MacNeil to test as well.
7 MacLeods have tested positive out of the 58 who share a common haplotype and one more is awaiting his results.
Thank you for setting up the project. Just to make sure I have it right, people in the first few categories (immediately below) are likely suspects but have not been tested for L165 yet, right?
