From: Whitney Keen <wkeen -at- inksite.com> Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Re: Interested so far Date: Tue, 01 Oct 2002 18:43:15 -0400 References: <v01540b00b9bf639a804b@[142.154.114.184]> Hello everyone: I have emailed Bennett Greenspan, who is the president of FamilyTreeDNA.com which does Ydna and mtdna testing. They have a program called "Surname Project" which they host. It is password protected, I believe. We need to come up with 6 people willing to participate who have an uninterrupted male line from either John1 or Henry1, because we actually know quite a lot about those lines and can confirm the descent. I would be willing to be a Group Administrator for this if people want me to. We are way ahead of most projects becaue we already have a web site and a great many potential participants. We also have a lot of good genealogical researach to proof against. He says that the price for the 12 marker Y chromosome test is $99, and once there have been some matches, two individuals who match 11/12 or 12/12 could, for $90 additional, do the 25 marker test, which will reduce the time frame for the Most Recent Common Ancestor. There has been a lot of info in the site already about these tests, which are I think the same ones Whitney Hite took. It may be that he doesn't need to do it again, since his dna is already on file. If the rest of you would like me to pursue this, I will go on the ftdna site and learn what I have to do to set up the project, but I know I will need those 6 people to start, especially since we have at least two lines. I think I have to purchase 6 dna kits which I would send to the first 6 participants (hopefully you would reimburse me (-: )) Since I am female, I cannot be one of the participants, but I would be as interested as the rest of you to find out if our two known lines are related, as well as whether some of the unconnected Whitneys are also related. And if we are related to the Whitneys of Whitney-on-Wye. W. WHITNEY wrote: > From: "Whitney & Mary" <woh -at- zianet.com> > Hi, it appears that I have started quiet a discussion about DNA.
